Only five barrels of this wine were made; five barrels! -and everything about this Cabernet Franc speaks of the care it has received all along its way to the glass. Hand harvested from the Gallagher Vineyard just south of Stag's Leap on the mountain side of the Silverado Trail, these Cabernet Franc vines were planted in 1993 and thereby offer choice fruit and plenty of concentration -enough to call for 20 months in French oak (20% new and 80% neutral). The nose brings to mind the French hard berry candies we relish from tins along with brown spice notes of cinnamon bark and cardamom. It unfolds slowly in the glass to reveal a sultry feminine, earthy quality, laden with sundried cherries. Gentley made to preserve every scent and flavor, this is among the great Cabernet Francs of the Western Seaboard.
