2018 CABERNET FRANC

 Dark garnet in color. The nose opens with notes of dried fruit, dark berry, and milk chocolate. Hints of sweet oak, dried herb, and coconut add to the complex aroma. Smooth and supple tannins finely woven with cherry and sweet herb on the palate. A crisp, clean finish with lingering notes of cassis.

In the foreground, our Cabernet Sauvignon vines. In the background the top of Mount Veeder rises above the vines.

Mount Veeder Winery was one of the first producers of Cabernet Franc, and was the first vineyard in California to plant all five Bordeaux varietals. This is a truly noble grape variety, as the father of Cabernet Sauvignon, with its own personality and characteristics that reach terrific expression on the mountain.
