Stepping Stone Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet Franc is typically used as a blending grape for its aromatic component, but we like it on its own precisely because of its provocative nose. This vineyard is on the valley floor near Yountville and the fruit is sustainably grown. The grapes hang until very ripe, accentuating the black cherry and raspberry flavors on the palate with spicy notes of tarragon, black pepper, sandalwood and fragrant roses in the aromas. This Cabernet Franc is big, ripe and complex with a rich, creamy finish- - meant for steaks and chops. 1,023 cases produced

vineyard, vintage, & variety OUR THIRD DECADE OF EXCELLENCE EXCELLENCE IS NOT ENOUGH. We have to go beyond and establish an ever higher goal each vintage. Our mission is to craft wines that are not only exceptional, but memorable. Each of our wines expresses the essence of vineyard, variety and vintage, which combine each harvest to create something never to be exactly repeated.
