2018 Cabernet Franc

2018 Cabernet Franc

Like all of our wines, the grapes were sourced from the Narmata Bench. In this case from the Thomas vineyard, it was hand-picked and destemmed into 1/2 ton fermenters, where it was cold soaked for five days, before fermentation was allowed to begin. The grapes were on skins for approximately three weeks before being pressed off and put into barrel. This wine was aged in barrel for 12 months, in French Oak (50% new), with a small percentage of American Oak for added complexity.
