The brilliant garnet color heralds an alluring bouquet of raspberry, wild roses, maraschino cherries and a sensuous mouth feel of spice, mocha and black fruit preserves. Mixed cherry, mocha and wood nuances are triumphant on the finish. This Cabernet Franc is racked clean with meticulous attention, hand-bottled and hand-labeled, unfiltered and unfined. This is the work of a serious and uncompromising artist.
The Cabernet Franc from Carmody McKnight is not only estate grown, but is also 100% varietal — 100% Cabernet Franc. This combination of estate-grown and 100% varietal is almost non-existent in California but is at the essence of Carmody McKnight’s approach to artisan wine-growing and making, where the authentic, unmanipulated varietal/terroir experience is pursued as passionately as it is revered.
