Signature Series

2019 Signature Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley

The unique terroir of our rocky, higher-elevation Mount Veeder estate combines a cool, marine-influenced climate with exceptional sun exposure to naturally develop Cabernet Franc’s inherently earthbound, spice and black fruit flavors. This classic Bordeaux variety possesses both power and poise, and contributes layered, concentrated, earthen and fruit flavors to our Signature Cabernet Sauvignon each year.

On the palate, Damson plums, sandalwood and bergamot mingle with vivid berry flavors while subtle minerality is reminiscent of a mountain hike though granitic streams and a path through conifers and forest undergrowth. The lush finish echoes raspberry liqueur and plum compote with silky tannins to spare.
