Usonia Cabernet Franc 2021
A blend of fruit from Rasta Ranch Vineyard and our home vineyard, the 2021 Cabernet Franc is a savory, tensile example of the variety thanks to the cool, wet growing season. Turned earth, coffee, crushed raspberries, and tobacco in a sinewy frame. Not flashy or showy; a wine to spend the night with.
Hand harvested, destemmed, and spontaneously fermented. Gentle extraction during the 17 day maceration. Aged in 60% stainless steel and 40% neutral barrel for 8 months with sulfur added after malolactic and before bottling. Unfined and unfiltered.
