Our winemaker Jeremy Weintraub sees Cabernet Franc as an overlooked varietal in Paso Robles wine country, even though it has heat and drought-tolerant characteristics. The heat benefits the wine by creating aromas of black cherry, violet, and cedarwood. These aromas meld effortlessly with flavors of blackberry, anise, and sweet tobacco. This wine brings balance and grace to the glass and will drink well now through 2034.
