Updated Spring 2021:
Enjoy notes of dark fruit, cigar box, and a hint of vanilla. This medium-full bodied wine is very well aged with a velvety mouthfeel.
Tasting notes at the time of release:
The 2012 vintage reminds us of dark fruits, like blackberries and black currants, with savory fresh rosemary and sun-warmed blueberries. Enjoy it with slow-cooked pork, foraged sautéed mushrooms, or on its own.
Made from premium grapes from our estate vineyard (70%) and two vineyards on the Black Sage Bench, south of Oliver. This Cabernet Franc was made to reflect the local terroir and the distinct varietal characteristics. It was fermented in stainless steel tanks using various yeast strains to highlight the various fruit tones in the grapes. The result is a wine with a high concentration of aromas, yet elegant and smooth. The wine was aged in French & American oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling. After bottling it has aged another 12 months in bottle prior to release.
