Strikes the perfect balance between fruit and sweet herb, and the steam-bent French oak barrels support that balance by providing structure without being overwhelming. A classic and age-worthy wine!

Winemaker Notes
We in the Napa Valley have suffered an embarrassment of riches in terms of having a string of exceptional vintages in recent years. Starting in 2012 and continuing through 2015, each has provided near ideal conditions for ripening fruit perfectly. None, however, stands out in our memory like the 2014. For sheer volume of aroma and flavor in every variety we grow on the estate, 2014 is extraordinary. At Kuleto Estate, we prize our Cabernet Franc for its ability to retain its varietal character no matter the vintage. In the coolest or dampest of vintages, the sweet herbal component balances perfectly with lower alcohol and balanced acidity. In the warmest of vintages, it becomes like cherry candy in the nose and mouth with just a hint of its true cabernet character. In 2014, it strikes the perfect balance between fruit and sweet herb, and the steam-bent French oak barrels that we selected support that balance by providing structure without being overwhelming. Its kirsch and marjoram flower aromas and fine dusty tannins make this one classic and age worthy wine!
