2012 Cabernet Franc, Jones Vineyard


90+ GOLD MEDAL - San Francisco International Wine Competition
86 POINTS - Wine Enthusiast Magazine

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 22-year-old vines are some of the oldest, rarest and finest Cabernet Franc vines. Only the best vintages will be used for these bottlings of Cabernet Franc.

Tasting Notes

The deep, purple garnet color invites you to smell the aroma black currant, blueberries with a hint of clove. On the palate, thick and viscous with layered notes of blackberry, red currant, pomegranate and mocha. Long lingering finish with solid tannins for lasting cellaring potential.
