Duckhorn Vineyards was co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976 and has since established itself as one of North America’s top producers of Napa Valley wines. The winery’s seven estate vineyards are located in alluvial fans of Napa Valley and the much sought after Howell Mountain slopes. Winemaker Renee Ary works with each vineyard block separately and harvests when flavours are optimal and tannins are their softest. She approaches winemaking in an artisinal manner, by tasting and blending from close to 200 lots, separately barrel ageing each lot in oak from various cooperages. The result are wines of great finesse, personality and depth.
Duckhorn Vineyards has been working with Napa Valley Cabernet Franc for over a quarter century. Cabernet Franc not only has the ability to add elegance and complexity blends, but it makes wonderful stand-alone red. This Cabernet Franc is crafted from fruit grown on the valley floor, old vines and low yields from warmer vineyards; it offers beautiful varietal notes of dark cherry, raspberry and red currant with hints of tobacco leaf and graphite.
