Vintage Notes
The 2016 vintage for Napa Valley remained on track with previous years in terms of smaller yields of slightly smaller clusters. The quality of the lower yields remained high, in spite of early concerns about the few heat spikes during early summer months. Fortunately, cooler August temperatures slowed ripening to a luxurious pace which allowed us to harvest each parcel at optimal ripeness.

Vineyard Notes
The fruit for this Mt. Veeder Cabernet Franc is sourced from a single vineyard at the southern tip of the Mt. Veeder appellation, located in the hills of the Mayacamas Range of mountains which transects Napa and Sonoma Counties.

Tasting Notes
Characteristic aromas of coffee, cocoa and rose petals and on the nose lead to a velvety palate with bright cherry and plum flavors. The finish is velvety rich with big tannins which linger pleasantly on the aftertaste.

Composition
100% Cabernet Franc.
