Label Story: Falstaff

The Name: In Napa Valley, Cabernet Franc is a bit of an oddball variety, and very few producers base a wine on it. It seemed fitting then to name this Cabernet Franc-dominated blend after Falstaff, one of Shakespeare’s most vividly-drawn comedic characters, a knight of formidable appetite, a Joker with spirit and wit.

The Label: An early 20th century playing card – a Joker – gives this label its design.
