2004 Reserve Cabernet Franc, Rutherford Estate

2004 Reserve Cabernet Franc, Rutherford Estate

Untitled Document Winemaker Notes: With our 2004 Rutherford Cabernet Franc we embarked on a mission to enhance and play upon this varietalís unique qualities. We chose a combination of tight-grained thin stave Bordeaux barrels, and a few thick-staved Burgundian barrels. We employed gentle stirring of the lees with some barrels, and barrel to barrel racking. The grapes were harvest October 2004, hand selected and hand sorted from our rutherford Estate vineyard.We believe the result is a complex and very elegant wine and one of the best we have made. A definite YU M factor. 87% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet, 6 % Merlot.

Sensory Description: Dark Garnet red with exquisite aromas of Bay, berries and plum, mixed with dark chocolate and spice. Luscious, round and complex flavors with hints of cocoa, cedar and cigar box. The finish goes on and on, with firm yet supple tannins.
