Red Blend

Whether or not Frenchie descends directly from the monarchy is irrelevant. His regal airs lie in his pure breed attitude, his don’t–stand-in-my-way strut  and his round eyes that shine like gems on a crown. His majestic dignity and kingly authority are  irresistible, as much of his adoring public already knows.

Tasting Notes

Fragrant aromas of plum, cassis and cherry cordiale with earthy hints of licorice and cocoa nibs. 


On the palate it has similar characteristics as its owner; a small dog with a big bite. 

Vintage Notes: 

The grapes of this prestigious blend come primarily from three vineyards in Napa Valley; one in the Oak Knoll AVA, a high elevation vineyard in the Northeast corner of Napa and our estate in Rutherford. This is saucy blend of Petite Sirah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and just a touch of Petit Verdot. Our wine was aged for 24 months in French oak barrels of which 10% was New French Oak.
