“For this inaugural release of our single-vineyard Cabernet Franc, we planted a small amount in the part of the Sleeping Lady vineyard that is more gravelly, on one of the fans just off the hillside slope, using Clone 214, which is a powerful clone, so it’s a powerful wine.”
—Julien Fayard, winemaker
Tasting Notes: Dark & lively aromatics, fully ripe with concentrated, textured spices. Varietal freshness and acidity. A vibrant, powerful expression with savory tannins.
Aged in 70% new French oak for 20 months. 2018 is a classic vintage and a generous year; the wine is approachable early on and well-balanced for further aging. 88 cases produced.
