Stepping Stone Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 2003
Our 2003 Stepping Stone Cabernet Franc brings back the Yount Mill Vineyard, a favorite from years ago as the main source of Cabernet Franc in this bottling. It is accompanied by other Napa Valley Cabernet Franc, as well as a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon from the famed Pickett Road area of Calistoga and a touch of Napa Valley Merlot to add polish. The final blend: 82% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot.Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Purple fruits, lots of blackberry/blueberry and deeply ripe plums dominate the aromas of this young wine bringing forth memories of warm, ripe fruit in the orchard. Bright berries cross the palate at entry, accented by fresh, crisp acidity. The finish is bold and hearty.The wine was bottled 4/14/05. A total of 771 cases were produced.
