2013 Reserve Cabernet Franc

APPELLATION: NAPA VALLEY (100%)
COMPOSITION:100% CABERNET FRANC (INCLUDING FRUIT FROM THE CARPENTER

WINEMAKING: THE FRUIT WAS PUNCHED CAP FERMENTED AND BARREL-AGED FOR
40 MONTHS IN SELECTED FRENCH OAK BARRELS THEN BLENDED
PRIOR TO BOTTLING.
TASTING NOTES: BRIGHT AND BALANCED, SPICY NOTES WITH HINTS OF CLOVE AND
PEPPER WITH BLACK FRUITS TO FORM COMPLEX AROMATICS. CURRANTS, BLACK AND RED, SUBTLE OAK, AND CEDAR FILL THE MOUTH AND ARE COMPLEMENTED WITH SPICES AND A FULL BODY. IT IS A WINE OF DEPTH AND A LONG FINISH. IDEAL WITH LAMB, BEEF,
GAME AND FULL-FLAVORED FOODS.
SPECIAL NOTE: "WHILE THIS IS MY 11TH RESERVE CABERNET FRANC WITH FRUIT FROM THE GREAT CARPENTER VINEYARD, IT IS THE THIRD FOR PURECRU WINERY. THIS IS FOR THOSE THAT HAVE FOLLOWED MY FRANCS GOING BACK TO THE MID-1980’S.
A CONTINUING CLASSIC FROM THE WINEMAKER WITH THE LONGEST HISTORY OF MAKING THIS VARIETAL IN CALIFORNIA. 100 CASES WERE MADE OF THIS VINTAGE". -
