A bold wine expressing dark fruits such as cassis and blueberries, with hints of dark chocolate from the oak that follows through on palate. A full-bodied wine with a velvety and juicy texture on the finish.

100% estate grown grapes from Dry Creek Vineyard, planted in 2009.
Production Notes
100% Cabernet Franc
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this 100% estate grown wine were hand picked from select rows with low cropping levels in our Dry Creek Vineyard. The crushed and destemmed grapes received a 3-day soak, followed by a combination of pumpovers and punchdowns every 4 hours, and finally a 5-day extended maceration on the skins, to extract maximum flavour and colour. The wine was aged in carefully curated French oak barrels for 15 months, of which 50% were new.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this versatile wine on its own by the fireplace, or pair with grilled steak, roasted eggplant, and tomato-based sauces.
