Our North Ridge Vineyard was planted by Dr. Gristina over 30 years ago and produces a limited amount of excellent old-vine fruit. Traditionally known as a blending grape, our Cabernet Franc is sustainably farmed and hand harvested to shine beautifully as a single-varietal.
We carefully select our finest barrels for extended aging in French Oak giving further structure and depth to the palette of our Cabernet Franc Reserve. 2014 was an incredible vintage with conditions that gave us not only incredible fruit but a high yield as well, allowing us to create two-styles of Cabernet Franc in the same year for the first time.
This Reserve shows beautiful tannin and rich dark fruits with hints of pepper and spice in the finish.
