Our 2016 Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Franc comes from three unique growing sites: Watermill Vineyard, located in The Rocks District, Dugger Creek Vineyard and Summit View Vineyard. The wine opens with aromas of black raspberries, red berry fruits, thyme, spice box and graphite. Delicious flavors with rich berry fruit intertwined with notes of sweet herb, sassafras, licorice and cocoa. The tannins are seamless and polished in this classic Walla Walla-style Cabernet Franc.
Drink or Hold.
