2018 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Franc
2018 marks our tenth vintage of Cabernet Franc from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, and remains as the only varietal Cabernet Franc in our line up. Charlie notes, “Cabernet Franc can be hard to make on its own, it could easily become one dimensional. However, the older vines and high quality really show in this wine.” For aromas, we find those blueberry characteristics that are classic for Cabernet Franc. The blue fruit and floral characteristics shine through on the palate as well, along with a bit of concentration and tannins. “We’re using 100% neutral oak for aging this wine,” adds Will, “but fermenting in roller barrels gives us a wine that is elegant and packs a punch.” Drink now through 2029.
