Sourced from the Hirondelle Vineyard in the Stags Leap District of the Napa Valley, the ‘Estate’ Cabernet Franc opens with intense Asian spice aromatics that mingle with shades of milk chocolate, cassis and tar that take their shape in the glass. The palate is plush, delivering a soft texture and wonderful brightness. Racy acidity runs through the core of dark fruits with chocolate and smoky undertones on the palate. The long finish lingers. This is simply marvelous in its youth and will continue to provide drinking enjoyment for the next fifteen years.
