We have 36 bottles of
2011 Metaphora Cabernet Franc available . They produce 90 cases per year. This Cab Franc is a blend of 85% Cabernet Franc from the Sierra Foothills (North East of Napa) and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain. The Howell Mountain Cab vines are from an elevation of 1800 feet and are old, they were planted in 1966. We have had this bottle open for two days now, and it has become richer, spicier and silkier for the length of that time. There
is black fruit surrounded by viscous raspberry and black cherry components. The structure and acidity of this wine are virtually perfect. That and the length of time it has been open and still gaining complexity leads us to believe that one could cellar this wine for 12 years minimum. Currently the range of spice exhibited by the 2011 Metaphora C.F encompasses chocolate and cigar box, leather, mocha and baking spice. All French Oak was used in this bottling.
The average price of the 2011 Metaphora is $67.00 and no one is below $60.00.
We have 36 bottles at $39.50 and it is easily worth the normal $67.00
All of the very best, Rex and Michele
