We’re exited to have Cab Franc back in the line up once again. The 2007 was such a hit, it demanded an encore performance. The cast of characters for the 2008 remains the same, fruit sourced from “Sheridan & Dineen Vineyards”. Aged in 50% new and 50% once new French oak for 20 months the wine has a very sexy and sleek quality.

2008 StevensFranc Cabernet Franc, Yakima Valley ($30)
Surely one of the finest cab francs made in Washington, this powerful wine brings in the grape’s characteristic green, leafy streaks. Complex, spicy tannins wrap around blackberry, cassis and black olive flavors, finished with a whiff of dark chocolate.
