The wine opens with aromas of dried rose pedals and sweet roasted peppers with just a touch of spice. There is a memory of and dark cherries with tingles of spices as the wine coats the palate. The wine demonstrates classic leather notes on the finish.

Production Notes

Grapes for the SMITH WOOTON CABERNET FRANC come from tiny, Flinn Vineyard in the heart of the Oak Knoll District. Winemaker, Daniel Benton managed the vineyard and became intimately familiar with each vine. As the result of his efforts the grapes came in loaded with varietal flavors. With just an acre of grapes, production is very limited.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were crushed and bin fermented in small lots at cool temperatures. This method created a long fermentation which accentuated the fruit flavors and added complexity. To avoid extraction of harsh tannins, no pumps were used until after the wine was pressed off the skins.
