2017 Cabernet Franc Sonoma Mountain - Etxea Wines

2017 Cabernet Franc
Sonoma Mountain

$32.00

This Cabernet Franc is sourced from the rolling Northern hills of Sonoma Mountain. At 700 ft. elevation, the hillside location helps protect from spring frosts and allows for cool, foggy nights. The vineyard’s unique split trellising helps spread out the crop and maintain small clusters.

Our Cabernet Franc grapes were hand-harvested on October 2, 2017, de-stemmed and fermented on the skins for 23 days with native yeast. The wine was then gently pressed and racked into neutral oak barrels to age for nearly two years. This Cabernet Franc has notes of rhubarb, fig and wild berries. A classic bistro with a lingering finish!
