District Series 2021

Frenchman’s Blend

Oak Knoll District
Napa Valley
$28.00 CLUB

This lovely white blend offers a juicy, fruity nose juxtaposed by a classic bone-dry finish. Intentionally crafted to enhance minerality, floral overtones & the fresh fruit character of pineapple, guava and green apple. The wine finishes with generous body and textural depth.

This is a cellar-crew favorite. Everything about the wine is pleasurable and fun to drink. It’s great chilled ice cold as well as on a warm day, allow the wine to warm a little and see how the characteristics change in the glass.

Oak Knoll AVA

  • Just south of Yountville, bound by the Napa River to the east and the Mount Veeder AVA to the west
  • Marine influence from the San Pablo Bay makes Oak Knoll a “sweet spot,” with temperatures averaging 10°F cooler than Upper Napa Valley
  • Oak Knoll typically has the longest growing season in Napa Valley
