2013 Cabernet Franc, Alexander Valley
Cabernet Franc is principally grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in Bordeaux style blends, but it is becoming a favorite as a stand alone varietal.
Our 2013 Cabernet Franc is one of Lloyd's favorite varietals and was crafted from a small vineyard in Alexander Valley that has consistently produced rich and complex grapes. We hand selected a few rows to create a true expression of this glorious varietal. It has a dry complexity and tannic structure, with rich layers of dark cherries, red currents, coco and sweet oak. This wine is supple and drinkable now, but will age for years to come. Only 388 cases were produced.
