Our Cabernet Franc comes from Pine Mountain Vineyards, which sits at 2,800 feet elevation. Juicy flavors of black currant, mulberry and blackberry meld softly together with creamy vanilla nuances, pepper and a dusty oak spice.

Tasting Notes

A rich and thick wine, that is also silky and soft like a velvet curtain. This wine was the very first yield off the small "patio block" vineyard on Pine Mountain. Great color and richness yield flavors of dark chocolate, black currant, and blackberries that are followed with soft oak spices.

Production Notes

100% Cabernet Franc

Winemaker Notes

Pine Mountain Vineyards sits on the upper western flank of Pine Mountain, at an elevation 0f 2,200 to 2,800 feet. The high elevation farming reliably deliver fruit intense in color and flavor. The micro-climate of the vineyard exhibits all the characteristics associated with high-elevation viticulture. These include 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
