2016 Road Less Traveled Cabernet Franc
2016 Road Less Traveled Cabernet Franc

40% Dineen Vineyard clone 214, 33% Olsen Ranch Vineyard, and 27% Wallula Vineyard clone 327 Cabernet Franc. With the introduction of Wallula Vineyard Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Road Less Traveled has become intense, focused, and delicious. Pair this Cabernet Franc with roasted vegetables, pork, chicken, and hearty soups. 

Tasting notes

Deep and dark red hue with rich aromas of Bing cherry, blueberry, sea salt, butterscotch, dried herbs, and windblown loess.  In the mouth there are flavors of Bing cherry, allspice, graphite, and sweet brown spices.  Overall the Cabernet Franc is intense and the finish is very long.

Production notes

All the Cabernet Franc grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted, and fermented by yeasts native to the respective vineyards.  Only the free run wine was retained to maximize the elegance of the Cabernet Franc.
