With fourteen different blocs dating back to 1986, barrel and bloc selection always result in distinctive, complex and age-worthy Cabernet Franc from the Stratus vineyard. Aromatics of cassis, white pepper, steeped tea, black plum, oak char, and herbs de Provence crescendo into a well-structured and nicely balanced wine on the palate. The cool climate vibrancy of acidity and tannin is beautifully supported by ripe, sweet red and black fruits that echo throughout an ever-evolving finish.

Growing Conditions

2015 was a solid vintage with an early and unusually dry spring that led to early budbreak. Slightly below average precipitation all summer, except in June, which was higher than normal. A warm July and August continued into above-seasonal precipitation in the fall.
