Harvested during the second week of April with a total maceration lasting 27 days, this Cabernet Franc is aromatic and elegant, with notes of spicy red fruit and a long finish.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Franc Limited Edition is blended with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Franc grapes come from eight-year-old vines in the estate vineyards. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts followed by malolactic in barrique and an élevage of 14 months in second and third use French oak barrels. It's peppery and spicy and also varietal, without excess in either direction. The palate is elegant and medium-bodied, with fine tannins and very good tension and freshness. This should develop nicely in bottle.
