Dark and tantalizing our Hyde Vineyard Cabernet Franc gently caresses your palate with bright raspberry and cherry with bemusing hints of fennel and anise aromas that wind into a beautiful violet and tobacco core. Gentle spice notes result from a prudent use of oak.

Located in the Los Carneros AVA in Napa Valley, Hyde Vineyard’s East facing slopes provide ideal sun exposure when paired with the cool coastal winds that blow from San Pablo Bay through Carneros. Considered one of the superstar vineyards of the Napa Valley, the grapes from this location are perfect for crafting our single vineyard Cabernet Franc.
A brilliant vintage from start to finish, 2012 gave us nothing but perfect ripening weather. Warm days, cool nights and not a drop of rain until all of our grapes were in the cellar. A bountiful harvest with some of the best fruit ever.
