Horse Heaven Hills
The weather in 2013 took us on a wild ride! We had some rain in June, dust storms and even hail but by July we settled into record high temperatures. Ripening progressed quickly and we assumed harvest would come early but by mid-September temps cooled and rains moved in. The cool down allowed us to let the grapes hang longer and develop full varietal flavor. We harvested the Cab Franc grapes October 6th and they were beautiful!
Although we ferment Cabernet Franc each year, we usually blend it all into our Claret. This wine is 100% Cabernet Franc from our vines at Phinny Hill vineyards. It was aged in 100% used French oak for 23 months. The ideal consumption is 2 to 5 years from release date, but this wine will develop for another 5-7 years. The alcohol by volume is 14.1%. This wine was bottled September 2015
Price: $26.00, this wine is available to club members only
