RatingNot Yet Rated

Mike Herby is adamant that Cabernet Franc is Cab Sauv’s hipper, smarter cousin. The pair works well together in this limited production (325 cases) blend from distinguished sites of Stagecoach, Frediani, and Kenefick Ranch. 2013 was a tremendous vintage, and the aromatics offer fireworks of blueberry, dark chocolate and black pepper over warm stones. The palate is a powerhouse of dense, rich flavors – pure Napa Valley – with abundant, superfine tannins.
