Tasting Notes

This 2015 Walla Walla Cabernet Franc comes from three completely different growing sites. Watermill Vineyard, located in The Rocks District shares a floral, sweet herb component. Dugger Creek Vineyard is a cooler site, which brings a bright red fruit component.  Summit View Vineyard supplies the backbone along with ample black and blue fruit with a pinch of licorice and cocoa. Well balanced with a delicious finish.

Drink or Hold.
