For more than 30 years, Peter Franus has had the privilege of working with some of the finest vineyards and growers in Napa Valley. His goal is to preserve and express the unique character that each site has to offer.
Philosophically and stylistically, he relies on intuition, tradition and a minimalist approach to winemaking. He aims to create wines that offer richness, harmony, complexity and ultimately ones that can elicit the comment, 'delicious'!
The Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre for this blend come from a vineyard 3,000 feet up Cobb Mountain just north of the Napa Valley, where the sun, Pacific breezes and temperature swings give the grapes intense flavors and colors. That makes for an intense wine, but it’s balanced with an elegance and freshness that keeps it from being weighty, so the lively smells and flavours of wild berries, clove, allspice, sage, smoked ham, pepper, and lavender almost float around the glass.
