2010 Clos Pegase Cabernet Franc


Calistoga, Napa Valley, California, USA

This is a blend of grapes from two of the estate vineyards. The Mitsuko’s Vineyard brings bright and lively flavours and the Dunaweal Vineyard brings richer, more robust fruit flavours. Deep complex fruit notes of ripe black cherry, French plums and cassis are complemented by violets, baker’s spices and a hint of cocoa and dried pipe tobacco. This smooth yet weighty wine possesses a mid-palate density balanced by classic structure, refined tannins and a lengthy finish. Drink now through 2024.
