2017 Oregon Cabernet Franc | Walla Walla AVA | Oregon
This special Oregon Cabernet Franc offering was sourced from two historically significant vineyards located on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla wine region. This harmonious blend of 100% Oregon Cab Franc combines east and west facing 18-20 year-old vines grown in silt loam soils at 865-880 feet in elevation and was made in a Loire Valley style.
The grapes were grown and produced from New World terroir, but the wine is Old-World by design. The final wine is stunningly complex and thought-provoking.
This limited offering is a true tribute to the premier wines out of the Loire Valley, but showcases bold, dark fruit flavors with plenty of structure and minerality. It has a low-alcohol elegance not often found in single varietal Oregon Cabernet Franc from the Walla Walla region.

In the glass, you are met with compelling aromatics of graphite and dark cherry. The palate is silky, yet firm and lush, with dark cherry, plum and spice notes. It is a truly excellent, lower-alcohol wine that drinks more like a Loire Valley release than a wine from the Walla Walla AVA. This Oregon Cabernet Franc will age and enhance beautifully in the cellar for ten plus years.
