Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Cabernet Franc from our prized Hirondelle Vineyard in Stags Leap District is full of bright aromas of blueberry, rosemary, dark chocolate and pine, leading to notes of caramel and a hint of fresh mint. Dusty tannins lead to a smooth and spicy finish.
Production Notes
The 2016 growing season started two to three weeks early and progressed perfectly through the ripening process. The lack of rain during flowering resulted in a plentiful crop and instead of having very warm temperatures over the summer, we had cooling patterns throughout the season that lengthened harvest. The longer growing season yielded high quality grapes with the last blocks arriving at the winery on October 14th which happened to be the first day we saw rain for the season.
