Production Notes
2016 represents our first vintage incorporating fruit from Riverside Vineyard into our Cab Franc. By harvesting, fermenting and aging each vineyard block separately, we can refine our final blend to yield the best wine possible. In this case, Riverside is a strong contributor to the blueberry and spice components where Katie’s Vineyard showed more floral character and a more elegant palate profile.
Winemaker Notes
Generously fruit forward in the glass, this Cabernet Franc starts with notes of dark cherry, blueberry and ripe plum followed by a floral perfume and just a touch of cracked pepper and toasty oak. Like the aroma, this wine opens on the palate with more dark cherry and strawberry jam. The balance of acidity and smooth tannin give an intense mid-palate before drawing to a smooth finish with just a touch of oak.
Food Pairing Notes
• Cherry glazed roasted pork tenderloin with roasted root veggies • Colorado Elk burger with sweet potato chips
