2017 Cabernet Franc

$125.00 /750ml

WINE

Introducing our inaugural vintage of our 100% Cabernet Franc. This wine recently obtained 94 points by the Wine Enthusiast and only 25 cases were made. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, it is a great representation of the amazing Cabernet Franc that Alexander Valley can produce.

TASTING NOTES

This is a powerful yet balanced wine with aromas of dark boysenberry, roasted coffee and peppercorns. On the palate, there are lush flavors of wet stone, cassis, black cherry, and baking cocoa. This full bodied wine is absolutely stunning with balanced acidity and a perfectly textured finish which makes this wine worthy of cellaring for years to come.
