Release Notes:  The concentrated nose of the 2002 Cabernet Franc reveals smoky notes of Darjeeling tea, mingled with fresh aromas of wild blueberries, ripe blackberries and sweet toasty oak. On the palate, dense flavors of blueberry cobbler, crushed herbs and vanilla extract are wrapped in balanced tannins. The creamy mouth-filling texture gives way to notes of cocoa powder on the finish. Robert Parker gave this wine a rating of 89.

Retaste Notes February 2007:
The 2002 Napa Valley Cabernet Franc has hit a sweet spot in its development. Flavors are rich and smooth with supple dark fruit and deep notes of earth, coffee and oak. To paraphrase Goldilocks, this wine is neither too young nor too old, but just perfect!

Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes Our family vineyard is located on the valley floor just north of St. Helena on the Silverado Trail. It has well-drained, sandy, alluvial soils and is characterized by its ability to produce complex wines with well-defined fruit flavors, gentle acids and naturally balanced tannins.
Other Notes The 2002 growing season began with normal rainfall, and continued with even weather patterns that allowed for consistent ripening and balanced tannins. Shortly before harvest a record-breaking 18-day heat wave quickly boosted fruit intensity and skin pigment resulting in wines of marked concentration, rich color, and notable extraction.
