The Napa Valley region enjoyed a stunning, near picture-perfect 2018 growing season including good winter rains, mild spring weather and steady temperatures throughout that allowed for even flowering and bud break. These ideal growing conditions were followed by a cool, even and slow-paced harvest which allowed the winery to vinify wines at a gentle pace. The resulting 2018 wines are of very high quality with plenty of concentrated flavors, color and excellent acidity.

Vineyards

The Reserve Cabernet Franc is sourced from a combination of vineyards around our home winery as well as warmer vineyards in Napa Valley. We specifically selected premier vineyard blocks situated on well-draining soils, in sun-kissed, warm microclimates bringing out the most superior quality in the historic varietal.
