2019 Sleeping Lady Cabernet Franc Yountville - Zeitgeist Cellars

2019 Sleeping Lady Cabernet FrancYountville

$175.00 750mL

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!

The full notes from Jeb Dunnuck:

Beautiful red, blue, and black fruits as well as baking chocolate, espresso, and tobacco-like herb notes all emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Franc Sleeping Lady Vineyard, a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, compact, promising wine. All varietal aged 22 months in 95% new French oak, this is pure class and deserves 4-5 years at least in the cellar and should see its 20th birthday in fine form. March 10, 2022
