2020 Cabernet Franc
Walla Walla Valley
Summit View Vineyard, Dugger Creek Vineyard, Watermill Vineyard
Small open top stainless steel tanks. The cap was gently punched down three times per day by hand. After gently pressing, the young wine was transferred to French oak barrels to complete fermentation.
17 months in French oak barrels. 25% New.
The 2020 vintage provided a smaller crop than normal, with lighter clusters, resulting in wines with deep color, beautiful aromatics, concentration, and perfect ripeness. A beautiful glass of wine with enticing aromas and flavors of plum, black cherry, blackberry, sweet herbs, red pepper flakes, spiced cocoa, and wet loam. A supple mouthfeel and velvety tannins provide a perfect framework for this delicious Cabernet Franc. Enjoy!
