An introductory message from Al Buchanan, owner and proprietor:
“New Wine of the Week” is an important new section in our newsletter. Its purpose is to showcase, each week, a single noteworthy wine that we recently added to our collection. While the wines showcased in this “New Wine of the Week” section are not “economy” wines (we have those, also!), they squarely meet our demanding criteria for quality and value.
This week’s “Wine of the Week” is from the Maxville Lake Winery of Napa, California. We were so impressed with the quality and price of these lovely wines that we brought in four of their varietals, and this week’s featured varietal is the Cabernet Franc from the lovely 2014 vintage. We will feature all of them in the coming weeks.
This weekend you will have the opportunity to taste it before you buy!Try a 2-ounce tasting for $5 and put the $5 toward your bottle purchase of the wine! Come early, samples are limited! *
Maxville, Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley, California, 2014 - $54.99
Garnet red in color, warm nutmeg and ripe blueberry aromas elegantly supported by hints of vanilla and an opulent texture with a persistent silky finish that keeps you wanting more. Enjoy with a platter of hard cheeses and baguette or a fine Filet Mignon . "Rounded in texture, this wine boasts a juicy mid-palate and well-integrated oak tones. Cigar, tar, cranberry, currant and a pleasing bouquet of violet give it lingering character and a lasting impression." 90 pts, Wine Enthusiast
Maxville Lake is nestled deep in the Chiles Valley District of Napa Valley. The land around Maxville, formerly known as Rancho Catacula was part of a land grant from Governor Manuel Micheltorena to Joseph Chiles bequeathed in 1844. Spanish settlers and farmers tilled the land into the agricultural area it is today.
In the 1960s, the Edward Keith family purchased over 1,000 acres of the Rancho Catacula Land Grant and turned a portion of it into the Bar 49 Summer Camp. This camp offered children an opportunity to experience farming, horseback riding, fishing, boating, water sports, and arts and crafts in a rustic California setting.
The property was first planted to grape vines in 1974; today Maxville has over 100 acres of vineyard, growing Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Petite Sirah. The volcanic soils these vines are planted in provide a prime growing condition for luxury wines. Maxville winery practices sustainable farming in order to preserve the integrity of the property. Additionally, nearly 1000 acres are placed within the Napa Valley Land Trust. This guarantees the land will never be subdivided and it is only used for agricultural purposes.
In 1996, construction began for the most impressive tasting room and barrel ageing facility in the Chiles Valley. Maxville purchased the winery in 2014, and are now the guardians of the land. The facility and surrounding property was extensively remodeled in 2016 to the modern winery it is today.
Our underground caves can accommodate over 2,000 barrels, holding them at ideal humidity and temperature for aging. Vintage after vintage, our goal is to create wines that exhibit distinct character and elegance. The land speaks for itself through the high quality of Maxville wines
