About This Item

"We are proud to call Napa Valley the home base for Component Wine Company. Our first wines from Napa started with our 2013 Petit Verdot, of which we produced only 2 barrels. In 2014, we produced Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and of course, Petit Verdot. The vineyards for the red wines are situated in the Pritchard Hill region of the valley, owned by wonderful growers & producers that we are honored to work with.

From our incredible site on Pritchard Hill, this 100% Cabernet Franc is bright, elegant and fresh with a silky mouthfeel.  Our vineyard site here is an ideal setting for Cabernet Franc, and our specific block of this site is the perfect terroir to creat a Cabernet Franc that exudes Old World elegance, while maintaining a true Napa identity.  Soils here consist of red volcanic rock with clay loam.

What makes this spot completely unique is its position at the very mouth of the Foss Valley, overlooking Napa Valley, with a southerly view of the San Francisco Bay.  There is usually a steady breeze coming up from the Valley, providing more marine influence than the rest of the vineyard - the fog usually arrives here first.  These cooler conditions allow this grape to express its Bordeaux and Loire roots.

We treated this wine with 100% New French Oak, from the excellent French cooperage, Seguin Moreau, and bottles in May of 2018.

Varieties: 100% Cabernet Franc
