Gape: 75% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot
Tasting Notes: Plum, Blackberry, Mocha, Bell Pepper
Founded by Kashy Khaledi, Ashes & Diamond is a project build on collaboration, highlighting the region’s most influential voices. This savory and balanced Cabernet Franc was made by Steve Matthiasson, with fruit sourced from select growing sites in the southern part of Napa Valley.
The 2015 Ashes & Diamonds Cabernet Franc No 2 is an excellent example of how this grape variety flourishes in the New World. Powerful yet sophisticated, the wine exhibits flavors of plums, blackberries, blueberries, red fruits, bell pepper, graphite and mocha undertones. Aged 20 months in oak. Will pair well with a savory lamb stew.
