VINEYARD NOTES
The 2017 growing season started inauspiciously cool and moist – mostly in the form of snow, then cool weather until June. That’s when mother nature literally dropped her gloves and walloped us with an in- tensely hot summer; the likes of which we have only seen on a couple of other years. From mid-September on we were given ideal cool and sunny weather - perfect to slowly ripen the latest ripening varieties and with cool nights preserving the freshness that our region is known for.

TASTING NOTES
Our beautiful estate grown Cabernet Franc sourced from Union Gap Vineyard comes from vines planted in 2005. Aged 16 months in 38% new, 62% neutral French oak barrels. The aromas bursting from the glass cap- ture the hot vintage opulence. A smooth mid palate creates a well-rounded wine with gripping acidity and a lasting finish. Drink now through 2035.
