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 Corner 103 proprietor Lloyd Davis' favorite varietals for it's rich, yet elegant nature. It 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 currants, cocoa and a touch of oak, the latter which helps round out this wine. This wine is supple and drinkable now, but will age for years to come. Fans of cabernet sauvignon or syrah - don't miss this cab franc. Only 388 cases were produced.
