2016 Windacre Vineyard Cabernet Franc

Winemaker's Notes

Windacre Vineyard is our estate vineyard less than one mile east of the Russian River
Valley, located on Limerick Lane, Healdsburg, California. This area experiences cool morning fog giving way to warn days and dropping temperatures in the evening.

Tasting Notes

The color graduates from dark purple to magenta along the edge. This wine has an elegant fragrance of warm berry pie, black currant and baking spices. Notes of black cherry, vanilla and red plum on the palate. Structured tannins, youthful acidity and a long lingering finish.
