Vineyard Notes
The Kautz Family grows the majority of its Cabernet Franc in two of Lodi’s sub-AVAs; Alta Mesa and Sloughhouse. Alta Mesa sits at elevations between 50 and 100 ft above sea level and is blessed with red clay loam soils. Sloughhouse reaches elevations up to 590 feet above sea level with has a more diverse topography, complete with bedrock, and slightly warmer climate.
Winemaker Notes
Cabernet Franc is an ancient French grape varietal, genetically traced as one of Cabernet Sauvignon’s parent grapes (crossed with Sauvignon Blanc). Our signature Cabernet Franc, is known for its balance and medium body. Expressive aromas of bright red berry fruits mixed with a light spice and a hint of fresh herbs leads to flavors of red cherry and raspberry with vanilla-oak undertones.
Food Pairing Notes
Cabernet Franc is a great wine to accompany any number of dishes. Grilled red meats and game are perfectly suited for this wine as well as roasted pork tenderloin. It’s also amazing with rich dark chocolate desserts.

We love this wine with fajitas, lamb, and with cheese and fruit. It has a wonderful taste none other like it. Usually buy by the case when we can. Thank you

It is difficult to find US vineyards that know how to produce Cab Franc. This has more body and complexity than the examples from France. It is well balanced with intensive and unique aromas. A real treat.
