Cabernet Franc

A gloriously aromatic bouquet of violets, lavender, and ripe boysenberry is immediately apparent upon filling your first glass. Allowing these aromas to linger provides a hint of what's to come - the palate displays notes of blueberries, raspberries, and cherry cola with incredible depth, supported by cinnamon stick and white pepper. Balanced soft tannins and bright acidity abound.

More about the wine

The two clones from the vineyard were picked and made as separate lots. Fruit was de-stemmed and then cold soaked at 45F for 5 days. Natural ferment started after 5 days so they warmed the tanks up and added PN specific yeast. Fermentation lasted another 5 days, before they pressed the wine off skins.
