Dry Creek Vineyard
This premium blend features 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc grapes were vinified in a passimento style. These grapes were air dried over a period of six weeks. After this process, the grapes had lost nearly 30% of their moisture leaving the winemaker highly concentrated, partially raisinated, Cabernet Franc berries. These berries were then fermented in open top French oak barrels over the period of a month to allow for maximum extraction.
Food Pairing Notes
The perfect pairings for this intense, rich wine are Beef Wellington, venison and firm cheeses.
This wine is ready now and will peak by 2025. With proper cellaring, you can age this wine until 2030.
