Winemaker's Notes

The 2000 Niebaum-Coppola Estate Cabernet Franc has the classic spice and clove with sweet red fruit aromas that are distinctive Estate characteristics. Not all Cabernet Franc smells like ours, which is a testament to our old clone of Cabernet Franc as well as our organically farmed vineyards. We believe in the versatility of the varietal for both its blending potential and its individual delicious qualities.

With a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon added for range and personality, the wine is drinkable now and will age nicely upwards of ten years.
