A perennial favorite at this point. Only 100 cs of this beauty reach the west coast. Made from young vines planted in sandy/clay based soil, this is classic Cabernet Franc. Fleshy, grapey fruit backed up with smooth tannins that are never green. The gritty texture show some minerals and provide perfect seasoning for the up-front fruit.
