A beautiful, 100% Cabernet Franc with great structure, chewy, mature tanins, and compelling flavors.

Full body, clean clear terroir expression, this is a perfect change-up to your best Cabernet Sauvignons.

Vineyard Notes:

2011 started out with a cool wet spring, setting us up for a very unusual vintage right from the start. Yields were lower that average and the cool temperatures that continued through the year reminded us more of France than California. At harvest we found ourselves dancing around the rains, but our best blocks, nonetheless, performed very well, producing complex wines with lower alcohols, firm tannins, and great structure.

577 cases (12 x 750ml)
