Vineyard Notes:  Our Spring Mountain District Cabernet Franc is sourced from a neighboring vineyard located at an elevation of 1800 feet.  In 2001, two blocks were planted to a single French clone, 214 on two different rootstocks to match the soil profile.  With just under 1 acre total of the cabernet franc, this is a very limited release.

Winemaking Notes:  The fruit was harvested separately on September 27th and October7th, 2014 .  The grapes were destemmed and the whole berries cold-soaked for 2 days prior to fermentation.  The wine spent a total of 18 days on the skins before the free-run wine was settled and racked to barrel for malolatic fermentation.  The wine spent 18 months in French Oak barrels of which 40% were new.

Tasting Notes:   Rich aromas of bing cherry, blackberry jam, caramel, brown sugar, and dusty cocoa.  The chewy sweet fruit tannins greet the palate and lead into a soft and rich lingering finish.
