2015 Sculptured Cellars - Cabernet Franc
This exceptional cabernet franc based blend was crafted to translate the efforts and spirit of experimentation. A deep garnet hue precludes intense aromas of black plum, wild blueberry, fennel and nutmeg spices and rich cocoa. Flavors of spiced berry are punctuated by velvety textures through a mouthful of complexities. Dialing in each detail from exact pick dates and locations, to experimenting with new fermentation techniques and the use of Artisan Coopered barrels during storage. All variables are considered to craft the most intriguing blends from varietal dominant wines.
Dark crimson hue, black raspberry, ripe plum coriander spice, dark chocolate and black cherry aromas and flavors balance out the rich textures and bold acidity. Oak presence is spot on and compliments the fruit complexity with a compliment of fresh herb and a velvety mouthfeel.
Many of you know that cab franc is my wife Erica's favorite. This is the ultimate in attention to detail and has become my 'pet-project'. The complexity of this cab franc is like no other wine I've made and gives me chills each time I taste it. Honestly, what matters most is what Erica thinks - and what you all think. I look forward to your honest feedback! Cheers, Scott
