Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc has long been the favorite grape varietal of William Jarvis. He believes that it grows exceptionally well in the Napa Valley and is particularly suited to the Jarvis cool climate vineyards. This versatile grape is used as a blending element of our flagship Lake William Blend and the principle ingredient of the Science Project wine.  It is bottled also as a varietal wine.  The Jarvis Cabernet Franc is barrel aged a minimum of 19 months in 100% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Pure, unblended, and sought after! This is one of the pride and joys of our Winemaking Consultant, Dimitri Tchelistcheff, and he believes it is one of the best wines he produces - making this a much sought after varietal. Herb and spice aromas with soft plum undertones lead you to fresh fruit flavors of blackberry and blueberry.

2008 Cabernet Franc

A relatively uncommon but exceptional varietal; Cabernet Franc is becoming increasingly sought after as an unblended wine.   Jarvis is pleased to offer this 2008 vintage as 100% Cabernet Franc.  Aging twenty-one months in new French Haute Futaie oak barrels added hints of toasty oak and vanilla to the berry and floral aromas of this wine.
