JAX Cabernet Franc

JAX Vineyards produces this distinctive Cabernet Franc, sourced solely from the family vineyard. Tasting through the Cabernet Franc after aging, there were three barrels that stood out from the rest of the bunch in 2012. We knew that we would be doing Cab Franc lovers and ourselves an injustice to not bottle these on their own. Only 3 barrels of this lovely, drinkable yet age-worthy wine to go around.

Tasting Notes:

The power of the vintage shows through, with intense aromatic notes of dark cherry, blueberry and plum. The true Cabernet Franc aromatics of cigar box, black pepper, forest floor and pencil lead minerality are under the fruit. The tannins are present but soft and in play well with the acidity, with lush red fruit lingering on the long finish. Beautiful and bright in its youth the wine would benefit from 7-8 years in the cellar.
