Growing at higher elevation off the valley floor makes beautiful wines. Yes even for 2011!

A good solid wine. A little dry on the back end.

Mind-altering aroma of rich, cherry cotton candy that lightly massages your tongue with a parting soft peck of spice.

Aromas of herbs and rose. Then cherries, cut with bitter orange, minerals, chocolate, coffee, with a moderately acidic finish

Cab Franc at its best! Liked this even better than the cab from the same vintage. This is the best of the 2012 Cab Francs I have had.
