This Estate Cabernet Franc has intriguing aromas of rose petal, cocoa and anise. Rich and full-bodied, it has beautiful dark fruit flavors with notes of black tea and tobacco on a long, deftly framed, earthy mineral finish.
Our Block 8 Cabernet Franc (planted 1997) from Seven Hills Vineyard historically played a blending role in our Estate Perigee and Estate Merlot. However with vines maturing, we had sufficient production to produce in addition, a small specialty bottling of this varietal beginning in 2006. In 14th leaf with this vintage, this robustly balanced and integrated wine shows a rich concentration of complex flavors that demanded to be bottled on its own.
