Winemaker Notes: Our mission has always been to bring people together to share a glass of wine, to discuss and debate just as our team does. We have found that tables across the country have asked us for tools to throw their own wine experience. Allow THE DEBATE to curate your very own experience in the comfort of your own home. Together, let's “set the table” for the next great debate. The Cabernet Franc Three Vineyard Collection includes:

On the nose, a beautiful explosion of cassis, coffee, cedar, dried cranberry, cinnamon, licorice, bay leaf, raspberry and oak moss.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

2017 Sleeping Lady Vineyard: 


Jeb Dunnuck - "This vineyard Yountville continues to produce brilliant wines, and the 2017 Cabernet Franc Sleeping Lady is another one to add to the list. Offering a Cheval Blanc-like bouquet of cassis, crushed flowers, spice, and cedary incense, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a seductive, elegant, sexy texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It shines just as much for its complexity as its texture and is going to evolve gracefully for 15-20 years. There are a scant 80 cases made."

2017 Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard:

  
Jeb Dunnuck - " One of the top expressions of this variety coming from Napa is the 2017 Cabernet Franc To Kolan, which is 100% varietal that was barrel fermented and spent 22 months in 80% new French oak. It offers a wonderful, multi-dimensional, seamless texture as well as full-bodied richness and depth, silky tannins, and complex notes of cassis, toasted bread, and flowery incense. I’d be thrilled to have bottles in the cellar, and it should cruise for 15-20 years."

2017 Stagecoach Vineyard: 


Jeb Dunnuck - "Lastly, the 2017 Cabernet Franc Stagecoach comes from a large site and, as with all the wines from The Debate, it’s all varietal and was fermented and aged in 80% new French oak. Revealing a deep purple/ruby hue as well as complex notes of red plums, chocolate, and spicy incense, it’s packed with fruit, hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, has sweet tannins, and a great finish. It’s a classic, beautifully balanced, elegant Cabernet Franc."
