2017 Cabernet Franc MiraLaguna
Santa Ynez Valley
Jammy light red fruits tones, raspberry, strawberry, white cherry. Smooth fine tannins with a subtle floral essence.
Mira Laguna Vineyard is named for its view of the ancient sea bed that surrounds it. It sits on a small sand and gravel hill 15 miles from the Santa Barbara coast. The coastal fog keeps the temperature cool and burns off late afternoon giving the fruit just enough sun. This climate suits Cabernet Franc and gives it the proper balance of flavor ripeness and integrity. Slow Farming and minimal intervention combined with certified organic practices produced hearty, low yielding vines.
This fruit was handpicked, fermented for 8 days on its skins, gently pressed, and aged for 10 months in French oak barrels.
