This dark ruby colored Cabernet Franc expresses bright aromas of freshly picked blackberry and ripe cherry accompanied by floral nuances and forest floor. Nicely integrated sweet oak spice and overall complexity is balanced with dark cherry flavors. This wine is full bodied and rich with great acidity and a long dark fruit finish. Enjoy.

Production Notes

The 2015 winter was one of the driest on record for the Napa Valley. The region received 75% of normal precipitation. The relatively dry, warm winter promoted early bud break, and a cool spring supported a long flowering period. The balance of the season was moderate to warm, the crop was light, with small clusters and small concentrated berries, and the fruit ripened about two weeks early on average. A moderate harvest gave way to a warm spell that completed the ripening process a bit early.
