Cabernet Franc Melchior Kemper Vineyard – 2021

Region: CALIFORNIA - NAPA VALLEY

Snowden

Since 1955, the Snowdens have farmed their vineyard high above the Napa Valley. In addition to the stunning views of St. Helena, Rutherford and the San Francisco Bay, the estate offers four separate sites producing remarkably complex and individualistic wines. Winemaking duties are in the capable hands of Diana Snowden Seysses. The winery produces Bordeaux blends from their estate vineyards and a small amount of Sauvignon Blanc from a small parcel they call the Lost Vineyard.

The 2021 Cabernet Franc is a complex, dynamic wine. Crushed herbs, mocha, spice, blood orange and red cherry fruit are nicely delineated in this vibrant, mid-weight offering from Snowden. Readers will find a Franc that emphasizes energy and saline-infused freshness. Terrific. 2024 – 2033
