Auction 15 | Lot No. 194
Levy and McClellan
5 cases produced
This blend was inspired by our passion for
Cabernet Franc in celebration of the incredible
affinity it has to our distinct hillside vineyard.
As our Premiere Napa Valley debut lot, we offer a
blend that highlights the character of the site
through this amazing variety. The elegance,
balance and harmony of the Cabernet Franc
are further complemented through touches of
Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Planted to very dense spacing, the vineyard
consistently provides wines of layered concentration
and vibrancy. Fermentation in 60-
gallon barrels allows for gentle extraction of
the tannins, flavors and aromas, as well as
permitting us to separate out small, distinct
sections of blocks, thereby preserving remarkable
characteristics of single vines. Extended
barrel aging of 26 months continues to integrate
the eloquent tannins to a sumptuous richness.
This offering is a testament to our dedication
and passion for producing the best possible
wine reflective of its origin from our distinctive
vineyard site, and a tribute to the devoted and
appreciative wine drinker and connoisseur.
