Vineyard Notes
Stylus is created from grapes grown in our favorite vineyard blocks, including a selection from our Oakville Estate. As is tradition at Franciscan, we employ the paragon of small lot winemaking with Stylus.

2006 is a very good vintage. A cool, wet spring lead to a late harvest, two weeks behind normal. A July heat spell was followed by moderate August and September temperatures, and excellent slow, even ripening. The conditions resulted in densely woven wines with dark fruit, big structure and rich texture. Our Franciscan Oakville Estate reds were harvested between Sept 28-Oct 26.

Winemaker Notes
Cabernet Sauvignon has always played the leading role in Franciscan’s vision, since our first vintage in 1975, which set a quality standard for Napa Valley. Franciscan’s Magnificat and Cuvee Sauvage are synonymous with legendary quality found in the Napa Valley. Now, we are pleased to introduce Stylus, which continues to elevate the quality standard for Franciscan.
