We grow a single block of Cabernet Franc at Heart Hill Vineyard, visible on the right hand side as your drive into the tasting room. The 2014 vintage was a fantastic growing season and these four acres developed to be some of the best Cabernet Franc we’ve ever seen from this property. In fact it became the dominant varietal in our 2014 Fog Catcher and the remaining wine was used for this wine. We normally start tasting notes with aromatics but the star of this wine is the palate. It is focused and linear as it enters your mouth, bursting with blackberry & dark cherry notes, and a long bell curve of green pepper and age-worthy tannins at the end leaves your tastebuds intrigued.
