Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Cabernet Franc begins with generous black fruit and cassis. Its ripe fruit and acidity make it a very food worthy wine. Complex aromas of forest floor, dried cranberry, plum, and sweet pipe tobacco develop in the glass. Tannins create a long lasting grip and an amazing texture. The finish is rich, layered and long. This wine is balanced enough to enjoy now but will reward those who are patient. With proper cellaring, this wine should age well for ten years or more.
Ratings
93 POINTS- WA Wine Blog- The 2017 Woodward Canyon ‘Estate’ Cabernet Franc is a beautiful new wine that has a long way int he cellar to go. The herbal undertones of the nose, alongside the core of black fruits and toasty oak sing in unison aromatically. Once on the palate you feel that silky texture as layers of toasty oak wrap their way around ripe blackberries, black currants and black tea flavors, with tobacco and baking spices that all meld together. Fresh and gratifying to enjoy right now, the 2017 ‘Estate’ Cabernet Franc will enjoy a long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2032
