2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Franc

Classic Cabernet Franc aromas of violet, peppercorn, and black licorice burst from the glass. Supporting this spice is fresh blackberry and some underlying cinnamon aromas. This complex wine dances between fruit forward and savory notes. On the palate, the wine has chewy tannin with layers of black fruit and spice.

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The 2016 vintage was a textbook season for the Napa Valley. We saw a return to average winter rainfall with steady rain all winter. Bud break happened slightly earlier and fruit set was solid. As summer approached, we saw the return of Napa Valley fog that kept the nighttime temperatures cool allowing the mid-day temperatures to rise for perfect grape ripening weather.
