Lieu Dit Cabernet Franc 2016
From multiple blocks in the Star Lane vineyard. The wine fermented retaining the whole cluster and once pressed is then transferred to neutral barrels for the winter. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is quickly racked back to tank and bottle to retain the natural Co2 present in the wine to keep it fresh.

Antonio Galloni/Vinous – The 2016 Cabernet Franc, tasted from tank, is absolutely gorgeous. Varietal notes are accented by the natural concentration of the low-yielding vintage. The use of whole clusters (25-40%) marries nicely with the inherent aromatic/savory profile of Franc. A host of sweet red cherry, plum, dried herb and floral notes are all nicely pushed forward in this super-expressive Franc from Lieu Dit.
