Peju Cabernet Franc 2018, Napa Valley, California

In 1983, Tony and Herta(HB) Peju purchased thirty acres in the famed Rutherford district of the Napa Valley. They worked hard to build a winery, plant estate vineyards and raise their family. They remain family-owned, with their two daughters, Ariana and Lisa guiding the business today. This gorgeous Cabernet Franc begins with enticing aromas of dark berries, chocolate covered cherries, and baking spices. Bold and balanced this wine showcases both sweet and savory notes. The wine opens with fresh herbs and some hints of caramel that are complimented by plush, well structured tannins. Composition: 80% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot. Aged 18 months in French and American oak.
