Walla Walla Vintners, 2011 Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc

We have earned a proud reputation for producing one of the very best Cab Francs in the state---this vintage is no exception. This seductive wine is anchored by 85% Cabernet Franc from Weinbau, Sagemoor, Cordon Grove and Dwelley vineyards. Additions of 13% Merlot from Sagemoor and Spring Creek vineyards and 2% of Carmenere from Dwelley Vineyard give it an incredible flavor lift. This Franc being our 17th has earned the title of our Grand Dame. It is age worthy, lush and rich with notes of sweet dark cherries, ripe strawberry with a dazzling finish of cheese Danish, and buttered croissant. Tasting this wine will give you a true peak experience. This wine is even better if opened a little early and allowed to breathe before serving.
