Seven Hills Vineyard Cabernet Franc (oldest block planted 1997) is a significant and valuable blending component of our Estate Perigee and Merlot. As vines matured, the fruit made an indelible impression on our winemaking team. This robustly balanced and integrated wine shows a rich concentration of complex flavors which led us to make this 100% varietal, limited production wine starting in 2006.
This Estate Cabernet Franc has intriguing dark fruit aromas with violets, fresh peppercorn and dried herbs. Beautifully balanced, it shows cocoa, huckleberry and plum flavors with savory notes of cigar box on a mouthwatering, chalky tannins.
