2017 Windacre Vineyard Cabernet Franc


October 2020 Wine Club Selection

Winemaker's Notes

Windacre Vineyard is our estate vineyard which was first established in 1890. It’s located less than one mile east of the Russian River on Limerick Lane in Healdsburg, California. It is a gently sloping vineyard with ideal sun exposure, where morning fog gives way to warm days and cooling temperatures in the evening. Multiple soil
variations makes it the ideal location to grow Cabernet Franc.

Tasting Notes

Intense bouquet of spices, red fruit, and tobacco fuse with flavors of savory herbs and dried currants.
