Cabernet Franc 2001 5 Liter
Abacela Fault Line Vineyard's Rocky Crest Block
October 19, 2001
Cooperage: 30% new, American (50%) / French (50%)
The Rocky Crest block of our Cox’s Rock vineyard routinely produces Cabernet Franc with lavender and jasmine perfume notes. A solid core of fruit and red berries and fine lengthy tannins balance the acidity and depth. Aging the wine in predominately American oak adds subtle vanilla overtones and a polished finish. The wine’s complexity and refinement should improve in the bottle over the years.
