Our Cabernet Franc comes from the cooler growing region of Oak Knoll in southern Napa, having characteristics typical of wines from The Loire Valley and Bordeaux, France. The 2012 vintage is deep red in color with brightness on the palate. The nose is full of black cherry fruit, violets and roses, with hints of tobacco and pepper. Sweet black cherry fruit flavors are complemented by notes of plum and blueberries, followed by hints of vanilla and Asian spices. This medium-bodied wine is rich yet well-balanced, with a long finish that will keep you coming back for more! It’s the perfect accompaniment for roasted game or rich, Asian-inspired dishes. Drink now through the next 5 years.
Located in Southern Napa this cool site in what is usually a warm area produces beautiful Syrah. A combination of Durrell, Estrella River and Syrah Noir makes up the clonal selection. Dark purple in color is a characteristic of this vineyard. Blueberry, blackcurrant and plum fruit almost seem to jump from the glass. Notes of roses, lavender, olive and spice are beautifully intertwined with the fruit. A deep long finish that lingers. Classic Napa Valley Syrah enjoy with lamb and grilled meats.
