2019 Sleeping Lady Vineyard Cabernet FrancNapa Valley
From the renowned Sleeping Lady vineyard, south of Yountville on the western side of Napa Valley. The vineyard is situated on a gentle slope at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. The soil is alluvial cobble wash and limits the vigor of the vines. Resulting wines are structural and dense in nature.
The 2019 Sleeping Lady Cabernet Franc is a master class in texture: it is both svelte and supple. The tannins in this wine build so gradually and precisely, that one does not even notice the cool litheness that becomes the crescendo. The palate is replete with red notes of currant, Chelan cherries and ylang ylang; accentuated with a most judicious note of sweet oak spice. It reminds us of the classiest of libraries: mahogany, calming, full of history.
Less than three barrels of the 2019 Sleeping Lady Cab Franc were produced!
