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.
Our Estate Cabernet Franc, rich garnet in color, opens with intriguing aromas of dark fruit layered with violet, pink peppercorn, and clove. Beautifully balanced, it shows notes of cocoa, blueberry, plum and orange peel leading to a savory dried herb finish.
