2017 Cabernet Franc

A tribute to two of our favorite red grapes, this Cabernet Franc and Merlot blend brings up memories of some of the first wine blends we fell in love with. This Bordeaux-inspired wine is composed of 90% Temecula Valley Cabernet Franc and 10% Estate Grown Merlot to create a perfect California representation of one of our cherished wine blends from across the pond.

The mighty frog emblem was inspired by the frogs and toads that inhabit the creek below our vineyard and serenade us in song as they roam the vines under the moonlight. The frog is also emblematic of the earthy tones found in the Cab Franc and the unique terroir that supports our Merlot vineyard. From the marriage of these two Right Bank grapes, this 2017 Cabernet Franc delivers notes of bell pepper, herbs, and rich terroir to the middle palate while the Merlot brings balance and rounds out the finish with red fruits and soft tannins. The result is a complex and medium-bodied wine with a peppery earthiness that reminds you of fresh rain in the garden.
