2016 Cabernet Franc


Our 2016 Cabernet Franc is deep ruby red in color and greets you with subtle aromas of lavender, verbena, black currant and dark chocolate. Structured and well-integrated tannins round out the mouthfeel with flavors of ripe red fruit, plum, and tobacco which linger on the finish. A near perfect growing season along with our unique location at the peak of Diamond Mountain produced this pure expression of Cabernet Franc. 144 cases produced. “A barrel sample, the very deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Franc Diamond Mtn offers a wonderfully expressive nose of crushed red and black currants, blackberries and mulberries with hints of pencil shavings, bay leaves, rose petals, fragrant earth and black pepper. Full-bodied, rock solid and built like a brick house, it fills the palate with red and black fruit layers intermingled with earth notions and framed by firm, grainy tannins, finishing long and peppery.” Rating: (95 - 97) Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
