Cabernet Franc
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

The poet Lord Byron could have written his famous poem about this Cabernet Franc because it is "all that's best of dark and bright" and "so soft, so calm, yet eloquent." Although we usually have Cabernet Franc take a backseat to Cabernet Sauvignon, we decided to let its beauty shine through for this bottling. Lord Byron certainly knew how to appreciate loveliness so we hope he would have raised a glass to this inspiring, graceful drink.
