2014 Reserve Cabernet Franc
Aromatics of bright red fruit intermingled with cigarbox aromas of cedar, allspice, smoke, and forest. A full-bodied wine with a lush, well-integrated tannic finish.
Two thousand and fourteen was a fascinating year for ripening of our premium Cab Franc blocks. A swift shift into a cool, long growing season allowed for some very late picks on Cabernet Franc, meaning our different blocks showed more phenological ripeness at lower potential alcohols – all of that is to say that the resulting wine is full of finesse, vibrancy, and a depth of cola and red fruit characteristics.
