Tasting Notes

Our second standalone bottling of Cabernet Franc invites us back to enjoy what is the most ethereal of the Bordeaux varieties. On our Mount Veeder Estate, our 2018 Cabernet Franc offers briary, earthy, forest floor characteristics, backed by a beautiful amalgam of red and black fruits with an emphasis on the spicy, savory notes. Aged for 22 months in medium toast barrels, the sweet oak supports the fine tannins and elegant turn of this wine.
