2015 Cabernet Franc, Calistoga
Sitting at the northeast end of the Napa Valley at the foot of the rocky Palisades mountain range, lies a truly special ranch. It is here that we source a select few varietals, including Cabernet Franc. Historically, a blending component in Bordelaise wines, its stand-alone characteristics are leading to a rapidly growing fan base. Despite another year of little rainfall, the early harvest revealed tremendous fruit quality and the resulting wines are equally as impressive. Expect the rich, supple feel and approachable demeanor found in 2012 combined with the finesse that marked 2013 wines.
