2017 Cabernet Franc
Camino Alto Vineyard, El Dorado, CA
What we love
Light and aromatic, this insanely drinkable Cab Franc is one of our favorite expressions of the grape. Partial carbonic and whole-cluster fermentation create a textured, earthy, and super crushable medium-bodied red, with flavors of juicy plum, blueberry, lavender, and pepper. Serve chilled and get the party started!
About this Wine
From a mountainous 2,900 feet vineyard planted in 1998 where the vines only need two waterings per year as they have rooted themselves securely and deeply and are able to provide for themselves during the arid summers. The nearby American River Canyon provides a conduit for cool Sierra mountain air, channeled down from the mountains each night. This chilly air allows the grapes to ripen slowly and develop a more complex profile.
