Vinum Cellars The Scrapper Cabernet Franc 2007
This is a fine wine made from low yielding Cabernet Franc grown at high elevation in the El Dorado foothills in Red Volcanic soils. It is head trained to allow maximum sun light into the canopy yielding a Cab Franc without vegetative flavors. This a wine for the open-minded and adventurous, but any Cabernet Sauvignon fancier would become an instant fan.
This wine pairs nicely with well seasoned Rib Eye Steak topped with Golden Chanterelles sauteed with shallots and tarragon and a pinch of sea salt. Or try a whole or half chicken roasted and then split and finished over the grill, served quartered and tossed with brioche pieces, pine nuts, dried cranberries and over a Caesar salad with shaved Reggiano Parmesan..
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A 100%-Cabernet Franc from mountainous El Dorado County! This wine's crazy good with tons of varietal character — woodsy tannins, touch of green pepper, vials of violets — that’s also packed with plenty of great plum, cassis and savory notes of leather and mocha, all in a memorable package. With plenty of grip and acid, enjoyed over a meal, it gets better by the minute and has the depth to age 5 - 10 years, too.
Their philosophy is that winemaking begins in the vineyard and thus they value their strong relationships with top California growers in key locations. The duo has long-standing relationships with growers in Napa, Sonoma, Clarksburg, Monterey and Paso Robles.
