With elegant fine tannins, the wine is a patrician to Cabernet Sauvignon’s machismo, moving from violets to flavors of pomegranates, blueberries, graphite, and tea. Will benefit from additional aging, best from 2018-2023.
Cabernet Franc is the parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. Traced to the Basque region of France, it cross pollinated with Sauvignon Blanc producing the offspring Cabernet Sauvignon. Adelaida planted Cabernet Franc in 1991 and 2007 on the Viking Estate Vineyard.
