Sultry Cabernet Franc 2017
Few varieties on Earth are as recognizable as Cabernet Franc.
With its fine texture, its mid-level depth and pungency there are very few bottled as single varietals as we have done with Sultry.
Only 230 cases produced.
The usual end of harvest celebration has been replaced with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. After a good season the wildfires came right as harvest was wrapping up in the valley, thankfully we had an estimated 90% of the grapes already in. This year’s harvest tested our winemaking experience and had us calling upon the knowledge from our sister wineries overseas to help us be ready for any issues but even with everything that has happened, this year’s vintage is excellent.
French Oak for 22 months, approximately 40% new, 40% one use and the balance neutral.
