YEAR: 2016

BLEND:
40% Cabernet franc
35% Cabernet Sauvignon
25% Merlot

SOURCE:

WINEMAKER NOTES: While the 2016 vintage in Washington state began remarkably hot in the spring, it cooled off by summer. This extended hang time allowed for both gradual and even ripening – the perfect weather to bring out the best qualities in Cabernet Franc. 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.
