2016 Tonella Vineyard Cabernet Franc

This wine is rich with color, illuminating dark red, almost black in the glass that opens with classic Rutherford aromas of cocoa, tobacco, cedar, and hints of blackberries. On the palate, this wine is smooth with mouth-quenching acidity and dusty tannins, exemplifying the Rutherford sense of place. Winery Exclusive



Harvest 2016 was an exceptional, even-ripening year for grape growing. A record setting wet winter gave some relief to the years of drought. The dry spring started the growing season early with a robust set, and with ideal temperatures throughout the season and very few weather events, the season ended early and idyllically. This wine exemplifies these perfect ripening conditions for all varietals.
