About

93

The 2018 Cabernet Franc is dark, rich and super-expressive. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, leather, licorice and a whole range of floral/savory notes show tremendous depth. Despite having been bottled just prior to this tasting, the 2018 is incredibly appealing. The combination of intense fruit and the classically-leaning style favored by Lieu Dit yields a Franc of real distinction. In the early going, the sulfured version is a bit more expressive than the Sans Soufre, which is unusual, as the opposite is usually true.

Product Description:

Source from own rooted vines planted at the Happy Canyon Vineyard in the east side of the Santa Ynez Valey. The wine is fermented using native yeast. Once dry, we rack the juice and press off the whole cluster lots. The wine is transferred to neutral oak barrels for the winter. Once malo is complete we transfer to tank prior to bottling.
