Often known as a blending wine, the Cabernet Franc with its delightful lavender color, tends to be overlooked as the wonderfully food friendly wine that it is. The Cabernet Franc vine does particularly well in Jarvis' Napa micro climate making this a much sought after varietal. Herb and spice aromas with soft plum undertones lead you to fresh fruit flavors of blackberry and blueberry.
This is a 100% varietal wine grown entirely on the producer's estate. Aged nearly two years in all-new French Nevers oak, it shows a tinge of smoke—campfire nearly—from the barrel, followed by a reduced expression of blueberry and herbes de Provence. Firm, integrated tannins don't distract.
