We have been tending to these grapes since 2008. Each vintage since 2008 our Cabernet Franc has been used in the Junior red wine blend. I was starting to see some incredible physiological differences in the fruit starting in 2010. As you all know, balance is key for any and all Waugh Wines. The 2012 vintage brought the vineyard into balance and we are proud to finally release our first bottling of Cabernet Franc.
This is sensational stuff with stunning spicy floral notes mixed with blueberry, blackberry and raspberry fruit. It’s quite deep, lush and a deliciously complete and savory wine to drink over the next 7-10 years.
