2016 Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc

Only 5 barrels were produced for our inaugural vintage of co-fermented Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc. Hand-harvested from only 2 acres of our vineyard parcel #22. 

Cabernet Franc brings floral red fruit elegance and spice aromatics to the structure and dense fruit core of our high elevation Cabernet Sauvignon. Co-Fermentation seamlessly integrates the tannin and fruit profiles, with 24 months in French oak to enhance the structure of a wine worthy of our rare 'Black Label' designation. 

On the nose: notes of cassis, black currant, and cacao nibs with fresh blackberry

On the palate: black cherry, cocoa, blackberries, dark chocolate, and currants
