2016 Cabernet Franc
Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley
For the 2016 harvest, we had an almost perfect spring, the growing conditions during the summer had minor extremes and the ripening period was almost as ideal. September had a brief late heat spike and a touch of rain fell in October, rounding out a great season. Classic Cabernet Franc characters of dried cherry, black tea, and Mt. Veeder focused blue fruit along with floral notes and Asian spice.
