2017 Cabernet Franc

Pocai Vineyard

The Cabernet Franc from our oldest vineyard, Pocai has also become Betty Ballentine’s favorite wine. Bright red fruit of strawberry, raspberries and cherries enhance the mouthful. The structure is apparent in this young wine and is full of mocha and butterscotch notes. A combination of earth and hints of roses and pepper pull this wine together.
