2021 Estate Cabernet Franc

2021 Estate Cabernet Franc
11:11 Vineyard, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley

The 2021 Estate Cabernet Franc presents itself as a stunning exemplar of the varietal’s finesse and the terroir's unique expression. Upon the first swirl, it unfurls a mesmerizing bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, intricately laced with subtle hints of violets and an undercurrent of fresh, green bell pepper. As the glass is tilted and the first sip taken, the complexity deepens, revealing layers of black cherry, plum, and a touch of raspberry brightness. This fruit forwardness is elegantly counterbalanced with nuances of toasted oak, vanilla, and a whisper of earthy minerality. The palate is both robust and refined, a testament to the balanced climate of the Oak Knoll District, characterized by cool nights and warm sunny days which contribute to the grape's optimal ripeness and acidity. The wine's texture is silky, with a full body that envelops the mouth in a harmonious symphony of flavors, leading to a lengthy, compelling finish that leaves notes of spiced dark chocolate and a hint of smoked paprika lingering. Tannins are present but well-integrated, suggesting that while the wine is exceptionally approachable in its youth, it possesses the structure and depth to evolve gracefully in the cellar. A beautiful expression of Cabernet Franc, this wine is a celebration of place, passion, and the pursuit of vinicultural perfection.
