The Vice 2018 "The O.G." Cabernet Franc Napa Valley

The Vice 2018 "The O.G." Cabernet Franc Napa Valley

A winemaker’s dream vintage. Consistent growing conditions and cooler temperatures allowed the grapes to slowly mature in 2018. Harvest across Napa Valley was generous with above average yields and excxellent quality fruit. In Oak Knoll District, this immensely successful 2018 harvest gifted us the best Cabernet Franc grapes we could wish for.

The dream vintage of 2018 offers you an example of what true physiological ripeness means to Cabernet Franc. Red and black berry fruit aromas leap from the glass accented with a trace of chili pepper. On the palate, the texture is at once “light” and dense. Bittersweet chocolate and cola interplay with a kiss of French Oak making a second taste irresistible. The finish lasts for several minutes so you can slow down a little if you must!

Pride Mountain Philosophy

Our aim is to make big red wines on the black-fruit side of the ripeness spectrum that nonetheless maintain balance, nuance, and complexity. We want our wines to be approachable in their youth, yet to age beneficially for ten to fifteen years. How best to achieve these goals is something we continue to experiment with in small lot trials.

There is sometimes an unfortunate division between wine enthusiasts seeking the elegant nuances of aged French wines, and those seeking the intense fruit concentration of younger California wines. Our attitude is that each wine growing region has its own unique expression that can be embraced and enjoyed for what it is. In California, we have the ability to achieve a level of ripeness that is simply not possible in France. How to make a wine that celebrates this unique gift of ripeness without sacrificing structure, complexity and balance, is an artistic challenge that continues to be our raison detre here at Pride Mountain Vineyards.
