DOUBLE GOLD ~ BEST IN CLASS ~ SF Chronicle Wine Competition
The wine has a dark amethyst color, with a nose of cherry, vanilla, black pepper and cedar. Firm tannins, balanced acidity and hints of chocolate.
This balanced, full-bodied and intense Cabernet Franc is harvested from the "Block A Vineyard" in the Clos du Lac community of Placer County, California - our home vineyard. This extremely intense fruit has won awards for Casque Wines as well as a number of other wineries from Placer County and Napa County who purchase fruit from the Clos du Lac Vineyards in Loomis.
