WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2017 vintage in Washington state was marked by a significant cooling trend in late September that lasted for the remainder of harvest. The delay in ripening provided the luxury of extended hang time and prompted both gradual and even ripening—the perfect weather to bring out the best qualities in Cabernet franc making it the ideal variety to lead this blend. With the additions of Merlot for bright acidity and Cabernet Sauvignon for structure and backbone, the resulting wine is blended in the spirit of Bordeaux’s right bank.
