2015 Carneros, Napa Valley Cabernet Franc and Merlot Red blend

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Estate grown in small lots
  • Barrel fermented in French Oak
  • This gem of a producer is still a secret though they've been farming for 130 years in Napa

WINEMAKER: Jacqueline Yoakum: Italics, Magnus, Greggarious, Littorai, Schramsberg

AVA DESIGNATED: Carneros, Napa Valley

WHAT WE TASTED: Cherries in spades from voluptuous Merlot while the Cab franc backbone imparts spice, earthy notes and cassis. Medium tannins. Restrained, yet elegant. Another winner from Jacqueline.

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Grilled New York steak with tomatoes any which way
  • Pepperoni Pizza
  • Roasted Bone Marrow and jus with super crusty bread

PERSONALITY: The historic and famous cattle ranch is nested on the curvy country road named Buhman Avenue in the heart of Napa Valley. John Jacob Buhman began raising cattle on this ranch over 130 years ago, and his descendants continue to do so today, as well as farming 35 acres of vineyards. 

TECHNICAL: 

  • Same grapes as in Artesa, Mumm, Joel Gott, and Prisoner
