Winemaker Notes
The 2016 vintage has a restrained power and a balanced elegance that is representative of the best aspects of Cabernet Franc. On the nose, there are intense aromas of spiced dark fruit, although it possesses a certain brightness that is characteristic of the grape. On the palate, there is a refreshing acidity, layers of dark fruit and well integrated tannins. The finish is velvety suede with a hint of spice. Our hillside vineyard produces only a small amount of this beautiful fruit each year, and it delivered perfectly in 2016. – Justin Carr
Vineyard Notes
An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
Food Pairing Notes
Grilled Grass-fed Ribeye and Oven-Roasted Baby Carrots with Tarragon, drizzled with LMR Napa Valley Select Olive Oil.
