Description

Red Wine by Steven Kent from Central Coast, California. Cabernet Franc is at its most compelling when the variety’s characteristic herbal aromatic signature is allowed to express itself unfettered by obvious oak. In the 2016 offering, the lack of new oak aromas and flavors serves to highlight the gorgeous interplay between red and dark fruit notes and the customary herbal aromas that separate this variety from its bigger offspring Cabernet Sauvignon. In this vintage, for the first time, we harvested Cab Franc from two different vineyards. Each produced a wine of great quality though different in depth of fruit and intensity of acidity. In this release, the wine shows wonderful intensity of fruit, depth of structure, and enough of the herbal characteristics of the variety to remind wine lovers what they are drinking. This wine showcases a vision for Cabernet Franc that is in keeping with the world-class potential of the Ghielmetti Estate Vineyard and the Livermore Valley.
