2016 Cabernet Franc
One of our Flagship varietals, our Cabernet Franc is always 100% Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Franc comes in many forms, and its variety of flavors and aromatics are what makes it so appealing. Our style balances the ripeness of the new world style but still retaining the aromatic intrigue that makes Cabernet Franc so enticing.
Sourcing from different vineyards allows us to beautifully blend the herbaceous, earthy notes Cabernet Franc is known for, with the rich dark fruit flavors of Washington State.
The 2016 vintage was the warmest on record in Washington State. We were able to stay on top of our pick dates and retain good acidity while keeping ripeness in check. Hailing from 3 different vineyards really pays dividends in a vintage like 2015, allowing us options to blend our signature varietal.
