2015 Cabernet Franc Mayacamas Estate
Bear Canyon Vineyard
Shining in it’s varietal complexity with delicate aromas of dried flowers, raspberry leaf and green coffee, supported by stronger layers of black cherry, currants and dark chocolate. This beautiful mountain fruit’s gentle small lot fermentation nurtures tannins that are smooth and integrate pefectly in aging. This is a stunning wine to share and remember. – Justin Carr
One of the warmest and driest vintages on record, Napa Valley certainly experienced the effects of the drought. There was no frost during bud break which contributed to a strong, early set in the vineyard. Warm days and no rain allowed us to harvest a beautiful crop in early weeks of August.
