DetertOakville Cabernet Franc 2018
Detert’s estate vineyard is considered to have the oldest plantings of Cabernet Franc in Napa Valley and produces one of the best single varietal offerings along with an exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon that represents the best of Oakville's west bench. Planted in 1949, it is thought to be the first planting of Cabernet Franc in Napa Valley and has been farmed by Detert for over 60 years. This delicious, supple Detert Cabernet Franc offers a classic texture, power, and range of flavors that this vineyard produces. Gorgeous aromas of black cherry, floral black berry notes, baking chocolate and black pepper with background notes of tobacco leaf and graphite. Super textural in the mouth, with a lush, velvety enveloping structure. Along with the richness and complexity, the Cabernet Franc is bright, fresh, and lively with a dense core of mineral, bittersweet cocoa, anise and refined finishing tannin. 250 cases were produced.
