2019 Caladan Cabernet Franc
2019 Napa Valley
Cabernet Franc

The 2019 Cabernet Franc opens with cherry blossom and raspberry, followed by kirsch notes and hints of espresso bean. The Cabernet Franc and Merlot combine in perfect harmony throughout a finish that showcases refined tannins and a post rain minerality.

Due to limited production, purchases are limited to a maximum of four 3-bottle sets.  
Vintage Overview

The 2019 vintage brought us lots of winter rain, fairly frequent fog events in the spring, and a mild summer with just a few short heat spikes. Uneventful fall weather allowed for extended hang time, and our last fruit came off the vines November 1.
