Kenefick Ranch Caitlin's Select Cabernet Franc 2014
- Cabernet Franc
- Red Wine
The 2014 Cabernet Franc Caitlin? Select is a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a beautiful rendition of Cabernet Franc, with dark, brooding blueberry and blackberry fruit, some forest floor and floral notes, a dense purple color, and soft, silky tannins. medium to full-bodied, this is big, juicy, complex style of wine that surprised me by its richness and intensity. - WA
Dr. Kenefick was a practicing neurosurgeon in San Francisco when he first visited the area in 1970 and fell in love with the Napa Valley. Eight years later, he found this remarkable property, a 250-acre Calistoga ranch. Tucked into the foothills of the craggy Palisades, the ranch looked out onto a beautiful valley set within two mountain ranges. Nearly half the property was planted with old Italian varietals that had been head-pruned and dry farmed.
