Trinchero Napa Valley St. Helena Cabernet Franc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

“Cabernet Franc is most often used in blends, but it’s intriguing to me to bottle some Cabernet Franc on its own. This wine has an incredible deep garnet color, sarsaparilla and black cherry cola aromas with Cabernet Franc’s signature dried herb aromatics. It boasts juicy red fruit, melted licorice, and toasted green peppercorns and has an uncharacteristically soft mouthfeel for a Cabernet Franc. Thanks to its valley floor origins, with rich soil and good sun exposure, the tannins are nicely in balance.” —Mario Monticelli

Trinchero Napa Valley:
'The Trincher Napa Valley winery is a work of art unto itself- -the perfect place to craft our new luxury wines. As an architect, this Project has been especially meaningful to me. No detail was overlooked and we worked tirelessly to not only malce this a great functioning winery, but to also make it a place for friends and family to gather'
