The 2017 Cabernet Franc was picked late in October and fermented in open top bins with 8 days of skin contact. Our Cabernet Franc tends to be quite robust, so extra care was taken to gently extract tannins and color during the fermentation process. After fermentation, the wine was aged for 19 months in barrel, with some French oak to complement the fruit flavors. This wine has a nice silky structure, and exhibits notes of raspberry, blueberry, plum, and spice with a subtle herbal note.

The Heritage Series Cabernet Sauvignon is a small lot production that sources its fruit from the blocks in the vineyard that produce the most concentrated fruit. This wine utilized open top fermentation with twice daily punch downs to carefully extract the desirable amount of tannin, color, and flavors from the skins. After fermentation, the wine spent 14-15 months aging in a barrel with some French oak to complement that dark fruit flavor. The resulting wine is rich and complex with aromas of dark cherry, currant, and vanilla bean. The palate is full of fruit with robust tannins and a moderate acidity.
