The image on the front label was captured by photographer David K. Brunn. The ancient Drumlane Abbey in County Cavan, Ireland served as a place of refuge for almost one thousand years until it was destroyed by the forces of Oliver Cromwell. Here the great patriot Owen Roe O’Neill sought solace until he too breathed his last, also at the hands of Cromwell in 1649.

TASTING NOTES:
Aromas of dark plum and rich floral notes are enhanced with a mouthful of classic Cabernet Franc tannins, black pepper and licorice notes. A lovely mid-palate of candied fruit and blackberry preserves finishes with gripping acidity; a sign of great potential for cellaring over the next decade and beyond.

2014 VINIFICATION

The grapes for the Rosa Mystica Cabernet Franc are grown on several hillside vineyards from cooler sites in the Yakima Valley. The vineyards yielded wonderfully rich fruit flavors with natural balanced acidity. Once in the winery, only minimal and traditional handling practices were employed to gently coax characteristics that are expressive of this fragrant and complex varietal.

Aged 14 months in French oak barrels.

Sourced from Red Willow and DuBrul Vineyards.
