This Cabernet Franc pops out of the glass with aromas of blackberry jam, fresh blackberry, graphite, and star anise, followed by clove, and pepper notes.
On the palate, this wine is full of fruit with lighter tannins and layers of red fruit and juicy berry. Age 5-8 years.
Harvest 2015 was one of our earliest years on record. The persistent California drought and a cool spring during bloom led to low yields in the vineyard and an early bud break. Careful irrigation and canopy management were key and allowed our growers to maximize quality and create beautifully ripe and balanced fruit. The wines resulting from the 2015 vintage are some of our favorite to date.
