Tasting Notes:
Cabernet Franc was first establlished on our Stags Leap district property in 1978, as suggested by a professor from Montpellier. 1982 was the first year a small amount of Cabernet Franc was blended into our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc by nature is a soft-tannined wine, that is fruit forward with good acidity. Our 2007 Cabernet Franc is a blend from two seperate parcels on the property, with a little bit of Merlot added for additional weight and fruit across the mid-palate. Bright red fruit flovors dominate up front. They then give way to darker notes of blueberries, enhanced with oak vanillin, baking spices, and cream.
