2015 Cabernet Franc Coombsville

2015 Cabernet Franc Coombsville

The 2015 Cabernet Franc is another striking wine from Coombsville.

Intense aromatics and rich, pungent red-toned fruit make a strong opening statement in the 2015 Cabernet Franc. Varietal notes are amped up in this sensual, fruity Cabernet Franc. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later, but there is more than enough depth to support at least a handful of years in the cellar.

VINTAGE: 2015, the third vintage in a drought cycle, was a dream vintage, with quality along the lines of 2013 and 2014.  A warm, dry winter caused the vines to awaken very early. Substantial rains in late February and early March relieved most of the stress and set up the vines for a vigorous start, which was followed by continued dry conditions throughout the growing season.  The summer weather was perfect for the grapes, with no heat spikes or sudden temperature swings.  Harvest began few weeks earlier than 2014 and produced outstanding fruit, dark in color, with intense aromatics, that ripened while maintaining excellent acidity.

VINIFICATION: Arriving in small picking lugs from the vineyards, the clusters were hand sorted, de-stemmed and hand sorted again, berry by berry. A two day cold soak was followed by primary fermentation in small, open-top stainless steel tanks.  Following an extended maceration, the fruit was gently pressed and the wine moved to barrel for secondary fermentation. The wine was aged for 19 months in rare 100% New French Artisan Oak barrels with minimal racking.  Multiple, blending trials, determined the final blend, which was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
