Detert Family Vineyards, Cabernet Franc 2014, Oakville, Napa Valley, California
Tasting Note: A Napa cabernet franc made for Napa cabernet sauvignon lovers.
Purple-to-ruby in color, this wine has a nose of red-and-black fruit, raspberry, violet and baking spice along with hints of black cherry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied cabernet franc is concentrated and inky in texture.
The dominating characteristic of the wine is its high-tannin structure.
It’s as if the wine were made in a style to resemble Napa cabernet sauvignon.
Bottle Note: Paying tribute to over sixty years of family winegrowing, we craft small production wines that showcase our unique Oakville vineyard.
