Pride Mountain Vineyards 2019 Cabernet Franc Napa Valley
Pride Mountain Vineyards 2019 Cabernet Franc Napa Valley
Pride Mountain Vineyards 2019 Cabernet Franc Napa Valley

Enticing flavors of ripe red raspberries, tart cherries, blueberries, violet pastilles and crushed mint excite the senses and provoke the intellect. The texture is layered and unctuous, expressing both ripe fruit and balanced acidity with a crescendo of fully ripe fine tannins. A beautiful rendition of our Cab Franc.

While cabernet franc is universally associated with lingering herbaceous flavors, our mountaintop's long days of summer sunshine, including warm mornings and cool afternoons, allow the fruit to ripen slowly and develop gorgeous fruit and floral flavors with no green notes whatsoever. These four vineyard blocks were hand-picked at night over the last week of October, nearly the last grapes to be harvested from the 2019 vintage. To this pretty core, we added 6% cabernet sauvignon to build the mid-palate and finish.

Vinous - 94 Points
"The 2019 Cabernet Franc is a stellar wine. The Pride Franc has always had some percentage of blenders, but the 2019 is almost all Franc, and that really comes through in the wine's aromatic profile and overall energy. Silky tannins round out the finish. The Franc is one of the hidden gems sprinkled throughout this impressive range from Pride."
