This is an extremely small production wine made from mostly estate grown fruit from a vineyard that is located between Dry Creek and our Barrel Room. The vineyard is warm during the day but cools down significantly at night, perfect for this varietal.

This vineyard’s location in both the Oak Knoll District and next to Dry Creek imparts classic Cabernet Franc aromas of violet and perfume along with underlying peppery and herbal flavors. These are complimented by the ripe red fruit flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon.

The wine was aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 22 months.

Tasting Notes:

Hints of dried Provence herbs backed by dried strawberry on the nose followed by red cherry, rhubarb and blackberry. The palate is elegant and balanced with red fruit, black cherry, baking spices and oak with an extremely long and lingering finish. This is a lush and sophisticated wine to enjoy on its own or accompanied by an herb encrusted rack of lamb.
