Walla Walla Vintners Cab Franc
Aromas of dark fruits, wild herbs, pie crust, green peppercorns, and a touch of cocoa. The palate is rich with delicious black fruit and fresh coffee flavors, with ample acidity and a bit of grippy tannin.
"A fantastic, already nicely evolved blend of 78% Cabernet Franc with the remainder Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this offers wild herbs with violets and ripe dark fruits on the nose. The palate is soft, offering downright delicious black fruit flavors with coffee grounds and notes of creme de violette. Drink 2022-2030"- 92 Points Owen Bargreen
"Displaying a stunning neon ruby core with a pink rim, the 2020 Cabernet Franc from WWV spends 18 months in 26% new French oak and 10% new American oak. The mélage of 78% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of wild blueberry, boysenberry pie, purple wildflowers, cedary herbs, green peppercorn, and just a hint of shaved chocolate. Producing a bitter herb and black fruit characteristic on the front and mid-palate, it finishes with ample acidity and grippy oak tannin that will need some time in the bottle to all come together. Better in 2023." 91 Points International Wine Report
