Winemaker's Notes

Jones Vineyard is located in the heart of Dry Creek Valley’s bench land. Farmed by third generation grower Ray Teldechi, these 20 year old vines are some of Sonoma’s oldest, rarest and finest Cabernet Franc vines. Only the best vintages will be used for these bottlings of Cabernet Franc.

Tasting Notes

This fifth bottling from Jones Vineyard appears bright garnet in color opening to a terrific scent of spicy-plum, pomegranate and light vanilla. On the palate, pomegranate, loganberry, blueberry, and light spice akin to fresh ground white pepper. Served with chocolate dessert, this is a real crowd pleaser
