2016 Cabernet Franc, Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak

2016 Cabernet Franc, Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak

Tasting Notes

Our Cabernet Franc comes from the "Patio Block" of Pine Mountain Vineyards at 2,800 feet. Juicy flavors of black currant, mulberry and blackberry meld softly together with creamy vanilla nuances, pepper and a dusty oak spice on the finish. This is a rich and thick wine with silky nuances like a velvet curtain.

Production Notes

100% Cabernet Franc

Winemaker Notes

Pine Mountain Vineyards sits on the upper western flank of Pine Mountain, at an elevation of 2,200 to 2,800 feet. The high elevation farming reliably delivers fruit intense in color and flavor. The micro-climate of the vineyard exhibits all the characteristics associated with high-elevation viticulture including, cooler daytime and warmer nighttime temperatures than in the valley, longer sunlight hours and cooling oceanic breezes ideal for Cabernet Franc of great character.

Cooperage Notes

Aged for 22 months in 50% new French and American oak barrels
