2017 Cabernet Franc

Located east of Napa, our Mt. George Vineyard in Coombsville is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century. It was purchased by the Miller family in 1988, with current plantings from 1989. The deep soils derived from volcanic shale and tufa yield Cabernet Franc with aromas of perfumed fruit and fresh herbs and an elegant palette of refined tannin.
