Detert Family Vineyards

Cabernet Franc
Oakville

5 cases produced

Our family has grown Cabernet Franc on our property since 1953. It has served as a component in the Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet and in early Opus One wines, as well as our family “house” wine—on our table for Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I can remember. For Premiere, I chose to feature a special block planted to Cabernet Franc in 1949. We replanted in 1979 using budwood from the original vines—that budwood source is unknown, so we call it Detert clone. These vines produce fruit with complexity and density that can't be found in young vines, and this wine shows incredible concentration, purity and personality—and honors our family history, the property and the grape that has done so well here.
