Cabernet Franc Reserve

This especially food-friendly wine is so varietally characterful and intriguing that its outstanding response to our terroir has sustained its ranking among the most honored and loyally followed wines we produce. We grow vines originating from the Loire Valley as well as Pomerol and St Émilion, as the foundation of a wine famed for elegance and complexity as well as considerable age worthiness.

The growing season opened in late March on a note of suspense, with early bud break and threats of frost, which were mitigated by wind machines. Perfectly timed spring rains then allowed for a superior bloom of the clusters in early June. Beginning in early July we received 7 weeks of ideally warm and dry weather. Manual watering took place in some parcels with low water retention, and in mid-August we received needed rain. Harvest took place at optimal ripening times for each vineyard sector between August 14th and September 21st. Overall, 2021 endowed us with some of the most admirably balanced wines we have produced, reminiscent of the elegance we saw in Octagon 2009, which brought us our 4th Governor’s Cup.
