This deep and aromatic
wine displays a complex, perfumed nose hinting at black currant, savory herbs,
caramel and licorice.


Rich and juicy flavors of raspberry and nougat.
Ripe and layered tannins provide a long and supple finish with both a creamy
and toasted element and a balance in both texture and weight.

Growing Conditions

Oakville Ranch is the original mountain vineyard of the Oakville sub-appellation,
a tiny district that produces some of Napa Valley’s most celebrated Cabernets.
A place of dramatic beauty and dedication to organic farming, Oakville Ranch
farms its hollows and terraces in a well-planned program of sustainability, and has
crafted singular wines expressive of its distinctive terroir since 1989.

Located at the highest elevation of the Oakville Ranch overlooking the Napa
Valley, Summit Block Cabernet Franc embodies the energy and character of this
high red volcanic ridge, growing wine on the edge.
