2016 Paso Robles Cabernet Franc

$34.00

Our 2016 Cabernet Franc is deep ruby in color with relentless aromas. Upon first sniff, you are enchanted by milk chocolate, cherry and tobacco. Return to be allured by hints of vanilla and white pepper. On the palate, your senses are awakened to black cherry, tobacco, leather, and cedar held impeccably together by ripe tannins. Although excellent to enjoy immediately, patience will be rewarded as this wine will evolve over the next 3 to 5 years.

Description

Plummer Vineyard, located on the East side of Paso Robles where the Cabernet Franc planting was planted with a WSW to ENE row orientation, selected to reduce fruit exposure to direct sunlight during veraison. This unique row orientation has successfully reduced fruit sunburn and allows harvest “hang time” flexibility. Wines made from Plummer Vineyard fruit have consistently shown intense color and good acidity/tannin balance.
