2015 Cabernet Franc

 A gem of a wine - dark ruby in the glass.   The rich berry nose is nuanced with brown spices.  Raspberry and cherry dance across the palate with a light dash of cardamom, allspice, and cloves.  The full finish includes Cabernet Franc's characteristic briar notes.  Only 167 cases produced.  13.5% abv.


In 2015 2015 we began to emerge from the drought with 22.9 inches of rainfall (80% of average). The warm summer stressed the vines early which accelerated ripening and concentrated the fruit flavors in the grapes. Harvest started with Pinot Noir on August 17, then it was a fast and furious September: Chardonnay and Viognier, then Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, and finally Cabernet Franc on September 30. The last wines were pressed off October 12.
