Winemaker Notes
Emerging from what was a challenging vintage comes a jewel worthy of anyone’s cellar. The 2011 Cabernet Franc has every trait necessary to be a classic and collectable piece. Color, nose, balance, acidity and refined tannins are all present and accounted for. Farmed meticulously by the famed Beckstoffer group, this Franc shows notes of oak spice, black cherry, light Oakville herbs and dust, warmth of toasted oak, black cherry-vanilla, slight hints of dried currants and plum. The nose builds over time as well and new details rise from the glass over the moments of time that go by. The native yeast and stylish French Oak barrel fermentation has given this wine a sizable, extracted presence. While young right now, this Franc will certainly do well with a few years in the wine cellar to allow the bing cherry, pomegranate, refined oak lactones and youthful tannins to settle into blissful harmony. Posterity and balance are what this eclectic Bordeaux varietal from Macauley is all about.
