This blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc is a “Throwback” to wines that were being produced in Napa in the 1970s when there was a bit more Old World influence from the Left Bank of Bordeaux. It’s the perfect harmony of French restraint and spectacular Napa Valley fruit. This massive wine has great body and structure, yet fine integrated tannins with notes of spice, red current, black cherry and cedar. 225 cases produced.
Canard Vineyard has been making hand crafted wines in Napa Valley since 1984. They are well
known to enophiles and wine collectors, but have managed to stay a bit of a secret as they are not
open to public and produce a very limited number of cases each year. All of their single vineyard
wines are produced from dry farmed, estate grown grapes which are skillfully transformed into the
finest expression of each varietal and showcase the unique terroir from which they are grown.
Their French trained winemaker straddles a fine line between Old World restraint and
the vibrancy of the fruit produced from this historic vineyard in Calistoga. In just the last handful
of vintages, they have received over forty-five ratings of 90 points or above. They are dedicated to
creating wines of distinction with an emphasis on quality over quantity
