6% Napa Valley aged in French oak for eight months. The 2014 North Coast Cabernet Franc returns to a slightly tamer expression of the grape. This 100% Cabernet Franc provides us with really gorgeous violet, raspberry, and herbal scents. The palate follows with tender integrated fruit flavors and an energy that’s provided by supporting acidity and tannin structure. It is always amazing what a great range of cuisine pairs so easily with this wine, particularly when paired with good friends and family . 2998 cases produced.
