2008 Red Mountain Cabernet Franc
This standout, limited production Cabernet Franc is exclusively from the Red Mountain AVA. The deep purple hue is a strong indicator of the varietal and region. A pretty bouquet of plum, baked strawberries, allspice and dusty leaves dominate the nose. The palate offers bright acidity accented by notes of pie cherries, blueberries, cedar and a hint of minerality. Gentle tannins and a smooth mouthfeel add to this plush, yet spicy wine. At least one year of cellaring will bring this wine to optimum drinking. Enjoy through 2016.
