2017 Cabernet Franc Signature
Viking Estate Vineyard
94 Points | Wine Enthusiast
Viking Vineyard’s steep south-facing mountain exposures generate low yielding plants and full-bodied wines. The original site was acquired by Adelaida in 1991, and our initial planting consisted of 15 acres primarily dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and a small sliver of Syrah.
"Dense and dark in the glass, this bottling offers aromas of cassis and black-plum skin as well as lemon pepper and spicy mint on the nose. It's lavish in expression on the palate, where a smooth texture offers boysenberry-jam flavors alongside the telltale Cab Franc tones of cracked black pepper."
