Nice Cab Franc from SV. These tend to get better with age, this vintage is a great example of that. Smooth, almost some coffee undertones, earthy as well. Nice wine.

My favorite cab franc of the moment. Velvety and creamy, but with a nice acidic nip mid-pallet.

Mmmmm mmmm good. Wonderful and earthy cab franc. Bright fruits not heavily masked by rich leather and oak, with light grape tannins and full wood tannins

At a recent tasting at this winery in Walla Walla downtown tasting, it was interesting to try Spring Valley Vineyards lineup of wines. We were already familiar with their Frederick Red Blend, which we would rate very high. Katherine Cabernet Franc is also delicious, perhaps slightly less bold than the Frederick, but an excellent rich red wine too!
