This wine exudes aromas of baked goods and is loaded with deep fruit. An oily richness on the mid-palate is followed by a lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes
Perhaps no other variety expresses the special nature of our estate like Cabernet Franc, which always displays a distinctive femininity. This 2012 Cabernet Franc is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon is merely an artifact of co-fermenting a small bit with the Franc in order to fill up a small open-top fermenter. This wine exudes aromas of baked goods and is loaded with deep fruit. An oily richness on the mid-palate is followed by a lingering finish.
