The 2011 Vintage

Our Cabernet Franc accentuates the wonderful dark fruit and spice characteristics that are naturally present in the grapes. Whole berry fermentation lifts the fruit and gives the plum, fig and blackberry flavors at the core prominence. The tannins are soft and round, and the wine has bright acidity. Aromas of blackberry and plum with hints of violet follow through on the palate with an additional, soft note of white pepper. The wine has an elegant, lengthy finish. “I’ve always loved the spicy accents in this wine that complement the lush fruit aromas and flavors.” – Mark Beringer
