A classic expression of Cabernet Franc. Perfectly ripe red summer cherries. Freshly ground cardamom and clove. Crushed violets. Robert Mondavi chose Oakville for the home of his winery in 1966 and planted cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc andother key grape varieties with the goal of creating wines that could stand in the company of the world’s finest. The grapes chosen for our Oakville District cabernet franc are grown on low fertility, well-drained soils with optimal sunexposure, yielding fruit maturity and the aromatics which cabernet franc is prized for.
