Hagafen Winery / Prix : Cabernet Franc, Wieruszowski Vineyard 2008

I stayed at the Inn on First, a quaint and beautiful B and B in downtown Napa. The wonderful hosts suggested a few wineries to visit and one was Hagafen. What a treat! Aine Kelly of the winery was very friendly in fact she wanted to buy or trade for wine for my wild shirt that I was wearing for her boyfriend ! ( I didn’t )  I tried several wines there with my favorites being the Cab Franc 2009 for $36. a bottle. Their reserve brand : Prix really had the gems including the 2008 Cab Franc with a nice spiciness and smooth finish and The 2007 Melange Red Blend at $75. a bottle. This wine was sumptuous….with a deep red color and subtle spice with rich berry flavors. A very well rounded and balanced wine and in Aine’s words ” hubba hubba ” Her favorite wine.  Thanks to everyone at Hagafen.HagafenPrixIMG_5477
