Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our family’s Rockpile vineyards are located at nearly 1,200-ft. elevation in the Rockpile appellation. The Cabernet Franc is planted here in the Buck Pasture Vineyard. With its gravelly loam soils, 30-degree slope and southwestern sun exposure, it’s the absolute perfect place to grow this varietal.
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 Cabernet Franc is a masterpiece of its kind. If you truly love Cabernet Franc, you will love this energetic wine. Aromas of black cherry, wild dried brush and pencil lead shavings mingle perfectly with the essences of sweet baking spice. Strikingly harmonious and complex on the palate, this wine opens up to flavors of red fruit, mineral and mocha that overlay refined tannins. The finish is bright and focused. Still youthful, this wine will drink exceedingly well over the next 8-10 years, but is probably best served by an additional 12-18 months of cellaring.
