Production notes

Our Red Willow Cabernet Franc is blended with a healthy dose of 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. While we love both varietals  individually, we felt that this blend was greater than the sum of its parts. Having a couple years of working with Red Willow fruit under our belts, we decided to use a gentle oak profile, with no new oak barrels and three-quarters of them twice used or older. This is because Cab Franc tends to be lean, spicy,  herbal and elegant which can too easily be overpowered by lots of new oak.  


Yakima Valley AVA 100%

Red Willow Vineyard 100%

Red Willow is the western most vineyard within the Yakima Valley AVA, planted at a relatively high elevation of 1,100 to 1,300 feet.  The Cabernet Franc comes from the Peninsula Block, first coined by David Lake, MW, and so named because the upper part of the block was above the Lake Missoula floodline. The parcel is underlain by Calcarious, volcanic soils with an influence of ancient river beds.

Blue fruit aromas from the Cabernet Sauvignon support and fill out the savory, flinty herbal notes of the Cabernet Franc. This cooler growing site Cabernet Franc has a food friendly, mouth-watering, acid and tannin structure that sings out to you with an invitation to dinner.
