Beaucanon Cabernet Franc 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Silverado--Longwood History Of Excellence - 2000 Vintage - SILVER: San Francisco Chronicle Winemaker's Notes Our first release of Cabernet Franc is smooth, bright and supple, with complex aromas of red plum and currant with hints of vanilla and spice. The unique flavors of the varietal shine through; a mouthful of cherry, rhubarb, red currant and black plum flavors with subtle touches of rose petal and pencil lead. Tannins are silky, caressing the palate while a vibrant acidity keeps the wine refreshing and bright - a delicious wine with excellent balance and a long finish. This is the perfect summer red and a great food wine, pair it with sausages or chicken from the grill, pizza and pastas. 100% Estate Grown, Produced and Bottled Techsheet for Trade Shelftalkers for Trade Sugar: 24.5 degrees

Situated in beautiful Napa Valley, on the historic Longwood Ranch, Beaucanon Estate reflects the proud history and experience of the de Coninck family of St. Emilion. Our vineyards provide outstanding grapes that, with the blessings of nature and the knowledgeable hands of an experienced Bordelaise winemaker, become epic and uncommon wines, expressing the intense fruit quality of California along with the balance and elegance of Bordeaux. The descendents of Jacques de Coninck are carrying forward the tradition of the family and its winemaking heritage. Louis de Coninck creates our wines with an emphasis on structure, mouth-feel and the luscious flavors of Napa Valley fruit. Like all great winemakers, Louis excels at highlighting the natural characteristics of perfectly ripe fruit, without resorting to popular techniques that emphasize tannins or alcohol. Aging takes place in carefully selected barrels and creating the final blend to produce wines of such intriguing complexity requires an intuitive and delicate touch. The result is concentrated, richly flavored and balanced wines that are pleasant and engaging when young, and only get better with maturity. Read less
