2017 Cabernet Franc
76% Cabernet Franc, 16% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot
Corry's Notes - Cabernet Franc is one of my favorite grapes to grow in the vineyard and make in the cellar because it lends itself to many different winemaking techniques and styles. The good quality of fruit in 2017 allowed for longer maceration, leading to refined tannins and a lengthy finish. The goal is achieving freshness by balancing acidity, fruity notes, and tannin. Aged for eight months in mostly neutral French Oak and a bit of Hungarian Oak.
