Vineland Cabernet Franc 2018

Product description

Friendly and approachable, the 2018 vintage did not initially promise such an agreeable outcome. It was a difficult birth on the crush pad as the Cabernet Franc grapes edged into their late fall harvest peak. Outside environmental pressures were creeping up on the crop but our steady harvest crew knew the timing and was ready with a plan. Hard work, refined skills and a firm grasp of the grape’s history turned this challenge into a triumph.

Blackberry and cassis lead the way with red currant and raspberry filling in. There is also a very small hint of smoked black pepper that keeps the rich fruit notes forward and focused. Lively on the plate, this wine is like a treasured old friend; it is both contentious and comforting and in the right measure.
