Tasting Notes

90 points Wine Spectator: "Solid, with lots of gutsy briar, black olive, black currant and tobacco flavors that pump through the finish, which puts it all together. Drink now through 2008. 3,000 cases made." (12/06) This wine is 100% Cabernet Franc which was harvested from vines ranging in age from 15 years to 35 years old. It went under an aggressive pre-harvest triage, de-stemmed prior to fermentation and an 8-10 day maceration. Aged in stainless steel tanks for 7-9 months this is a clean, bright, pure expression of Cabernet Franc that really sings on its own or with the fresh flavors of spring!
