The 2021 Cabernet Franc is a standout vintage, boasting a deep garnet-red hue that reflects its richness. On the nose, it presents an impressive array of dark cherries and amplified blue fruit notes, creating a captivating aroma. As you take a sip, the palate is treated to an explosion of ripe dark cherries and juicy blueberries, balanced harmoniously by fully developed fine-grained tannins. This wine reveals its sophistication with hints of cocoa and graphite, adding depth and complexity. Aging potential 12-20 Years.
The parent grape to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc often expresses the same denseness and richness of its offspring yet has a complexity that is all its own. We source our Cabernet Franc grapes from the small corner block fronting both Pickett Road and Rosedale Road in Calistoga from vines that are over 40 years old.
