BEST OF CLASS - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
91 POINTS - Ken's Wine Guide

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

A gravel lined driveway leads to a pomegranate, plum and black cherry orchard. Once there, you will taste concentrated red fruit, dense tannins and black pepper. There's a hint of brightness from underlying acidity that peaks on the midpalate before the long lingering finish.
