Isenhower Cabernet Franc

$18.00

FROM PRODUCER:

Medium-dark red hue. Initial aromas of dark
cherry, wet stones, and roasted red bell
pepper are followed by notes of blueberry
and thyme. The Cabernet Franc has moderate weight on the palate.
There is a perfect balance between the
minerality/acidity, herbal/earthy tones, and
the cherry/blueberry Flavors. A fun, youthful
wine that has similarities to Loire Valley
Cabernet Franc (which pleases the
winemaker).

Four vineyards and three clones comprise
this Cabernet Franc. Olsen Ranch was
planted in 1991 and is located on the
Eastern end of the Yakima Valley. On the
Western end of the Yakima Valley resides
Dineen Vineyard (planted 2004). Eritage
Vineyard was planted in 2013 North of
Walla Walla and Vista Montagna (planted
2000) is a tiny vineyard on the East side of
Walla Walla.
Dineen Vineyard Cabernet Franc was
harvested on September 26, Olsen Ranch
Vineyard Cabernet Franc on September
27, Vista Montagna on October 6, and
Eritage Vineyard on October 30. All the
grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted,
and fermented by yeasts native to the
vineyards. All the Cabernet Franc wines
nished fermentation in relatively neutral
French Oak barrels.
