Winemaker's Notes

"The 2003 Cabernet Franc Reserve "Conner Lee Vineyard" is 100% varietal. Late picked and aged for 24 months in French oak, 80% new, this is a benchmark for Cabernet Franc. Purple/black in color, the wine delivers a superior aromatic array of pain grille, graphite, truffle, menthol, clove, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a lavish, mouth-filling, thick wine which does not reveal its 15.4% alcohol. There are huge flavors of mint, menthol, licorice, and black fruits, well concealed tannins, and a 60+ second finish. This is a Cabernet Franc against which all others should be measured (but quantities are limited)." - Wine Advocate
