100% Cabernet Franc. The fruit comes from two estate plots—one on flinty clay, the other on sandy gravel—with vines averaging 20 years old. It is pressed slowly and gently in a pneumatic press and fermented and aged in cement vat with malolactic fermentation. Pale, delicate, herbal.

"Very pale orange-pink. Displays an array of mineraltinged red berry and floral scents and an herbal flourish emerges with aeration. Dry and sharply focused on the palate, offering juicy strawberry, rose pastille and orange zest flavors that deepen and become spicier on the back half. Finishes on a repeating mineral note, with very good clarity and floral-driven persistence."
