WSI93+ This expressive wine displays a gorgeous nose of black Cherry and bitter sweet chocolate, as well as layers of menthol, lavender, and graphite. On the palate, ages worthy tannins underscore a savory mix of dark fruit, dried flowers and Kirsch. Fermentation: We fermented our Cabernet Franc in open-top tanks, using native yeast, and 30% whole cluster to underscore the varietal’s herbal, savory side. We pressed using a basket press, and aged the wine for 10 months in 2/3 concrete egg to preserve freshness, and 1/3 French oak barrels for structure and mouthfeel. Cellar Notes: This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered, in August of 2018.
