Cabernet Franc 2012

Columbia Valley

WINEMAKER NOTES

The best fruit in Columbia Valley was used to craft this classic Cabernet Franc. It enjoyed extended hang time on the vine to ensure good color and intense, ripe fruit at harvest. It was hand picked early in the day to preserve the expressive fruit aromas of the varietal. We fermented this wine slowly in small batches for better control, and let it age in both new and neutral French oak for 18 months. About 40% new oak was used during barrel aging to compliment this elegant wine while showcasing the unique terroir where it was grown.

Enjoy!
