Built around a rich core of blackberries, butterscotch and dried cherries, the 2016 Cabernet Franc vintage from the Prichard Hill part of the Stagecoach Vineyard reveals complex aromas of Cassis, violets and tobacco. The 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, both from Stagecoach Vineyard as well as the 5% Merlot, adds a nice mid and back palate experience complementing the well balanced front palate. The wine is medium bodied with a beautiful texture, polished tannins and balanced acidity.
Intense aromatics and rich, pungent red-toned fruit make a strong opening statement in the 2015 Cabernet Franc. Varietal notes are amped up in this sensual, fruity Cabernet Franc. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later, but there is more than enough depth to support at least a handful of years in the cellar.
A deep ruby color with purple undertones, the aromas are vibrant, yet deep with an array of violets, blackberry, chocolate, cardamom and sweet toasted oak. The silky tannins and bold body frame the fruit, chocolate, and oak on the palate that linger through the wines lengthy and seamless finish.
The 2016 vintage was ideal for Bordeaux varietals on Mt. Veeder. The growing season saw little fog and the fruit ripened along a nearly perfect curve. The resulting wine is bright and complex with quintessential Cabernet Franc qualities. Accents of spicy, red fruit and earthy, coffee tones perpetuate a lingering and powerful finish. Our 2016 wines will continue to evolve in the cellar for decades to come but the balance and class of the vintage will allow them to be enjoyed young as well.
