FOXEN Cabernet Franc, Tinaquaic Vineyard 2014

The Tinaquaic Vineyard is the region’s only dry-farmed vineyard, and therefore must be meticulously farmed with yields kept at extremely low levels. The result is a gorgeous Cabernet Franc which opens with inviting aromatics of black tea, red bell pepper, and blackberry pie. The palate shows earthy characters of black tea, green bell pepper, radish and milk chocolate with red cherry accents which are underlined by lovely minerality. This shows tremendous range and has a wonderful mouthfeel through the finish. (Best 2017-2027) - August, 2017 (OB)
