Cabernet Franc 2016
Whole Cluster Fermentation

Wine Profile
Production Notes
The fermentation of whole clusters with unbroken berries not only influences the development of aromas and flavors in the wine, but also imparts uniquely structured tannins derived from the stems themselves. As a result, this wine has a well-defined structure, complexly textured tannins, and an element of freshness that suggests a wine worthy of the cellar.
