Nice clean fruity flavors and bright acidity. Watermelon, orange blossom and strawberry aromas lead into a clean crisp palate of wild strawberry and a finish of bright floral and fruit.

Winemaker Notes
Our goal in this 2016 Cabernet Franc Rose was to retain nice clean fruity flavors and bright acidity. When you taste this Rose you will see this has certainly been achieved! Watermelon, orange blossom and strawberry aromas lead into a clean crisp palate of wild strawberry and a finish of bright floral and fruit.

Production Notes
The grapes were destemmed before lightly pressing, giving the juice a pleasant pale pink color. The juice was then fermented at very cool temperatures for 6 weeks to retain fresh aromatics.
Vineyard Notes
2016 started out with above average temperatures reaching record heat in April. This jumpstarted our growing season and led us to an earlier bloom than in 2015. Cooler June and July months slowed things down, allowing us to catch up in the vineyard. Temperatures heated back up in August leading us to harvest our Estate Cabernet Franc grapes on August 31st.
