The Family Tree Collection

Perhaps you have heard the story – our beloved Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety – the grape we all love so dearly across Napa Valley – came to be as a result of natural cross pollination of other grapes within the wine grape family known of as Vitis Vinifera.

Today we are offering the two parent wines, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, along with their offspring, Cabernet Sauvignon, in a trio of impeccable winemaking and heritage:
The Family Tree Collection.

Family Tree Collection

Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc are all part of the Vitis Vinifera species and are linked by their common ancestry and genetic heritage. However, they have evolved over time to express different characteristics that make them distinct and versatile. This collection includes one bottle each of: 2022 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Franc (94 Points & Gold Medal, Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge), and 2019 Winemaker Series Cabernet Sauvignon (94 Points & Gold Medal, Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge) with shipping included.

Cabernet Franc: Cabernet Franc is another red grape variety that is closely related to Cabernet Sauvignon. It is considered one of the parent grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Sauvignon Blanc. Cabernet Franc grapes typically yield wines that are lighter in body compared to Cabernet Sauvignon, with more pronounced herbal and floral notes. In Bordeaux blends, Cabernet Franc can contribute elegance, aromatic complexity, and a slightly spicier character. It is also grown on its own in various wine regions, producing varietal wines that showcase its unique attributes.

Cabernet Sauvignon: Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widely recognized and planted red grape varieties in the world believed to be a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, possibly occurring centuries ago through spontaneous hybridization in the Bordeaux region of France. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes produce wines that are rich, full-bodied, and known for their deep color, intense flavors of dark fruit (such as blackcurrant), and aging potential.

Sauvignon Blanc: Sauvignon Blanc is a white grape variety known for its high acidity, crispness, and distinct herbaceous and citrusy aromas. It is believed to be a parent grape of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Cabernet Franc. Sauvignon Blanc grapes are used to produce a range of white wines, from dry and refreshing styles to more aromatic and complex versions. These wines often exhibit notes of herbs, grapefruit, and tropical fruit.
