2008 Estate Cabernet Franc Sonoma Valley
2006 Merlot St Jean Estate Vineyard Sonoma Valley
The wine offers bright aromas of blueberry, boysenberry and lavender and is very inviting. These blueberry and boysenberry aromas follow through to the juicy palate along with additional notes of fine chocolate and baking spice flavors. The well-structured wine has integrated, smooth tannins that add complexity. This Cabernet Franc is balanced and offers an extended, flavorful finish.
Estate wines are the best way to experience the unique "terroir" of a winery, with grapes grown entirely on our property. Our 2006 Estate Merlot is a fantastic example of this. Bursting with aromas of blueberry cobbler, plum and black licorice, this elegant Merlot delivers a generous amount of dark fruit flavors, with round and fine-grained tannins. An extra year of cellaring has softened this already lush wine even further.
