2021 Bleasdale Vineyards Cabernet Franc

$125.94
6 x 750ml
Bleasdale has been using cabernet franc in blends for over 25 years, but the 2021 vintage demanded this should be bottled as a 100% varietal. Destemmed for whole-berry open fermentation, pressed at 4 baume, matured in used French puncheons and tank for 5 months. Low SO2 usage. Magenta-crimson hue, brilliant clarity. High-toned bursts of raspberries and flowers lead the way into a light-bodied, delicious wine that demands immediate consumption. Read more
