Cabernet Franc 2016

Dyer Wines’ Cabernet Franc Wine

Cabernet Franc has been an important varietal at Dyer Vineyard since our first vintage.  It flourishes in our volcanic Diamond Mountain soils making a wine that is both mineral, aromatic and lush with softer tannins than the famed tannins of Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.  Cabernet Franc has been critical in our blends and, since 2013, we have bottled a small amount of 100% Cabernet Franc.  2016 Dyer Vineyard Cabernet Franc is our current vintage.

2 barrels made.

What one critic says…

Dyer Vineyard 2016 Cabernet Franc opens to fragrant red cherries, red-currents, black berries and roses plus hints of forest floor, fungi, black olives and pencil shavings.  Med bodied and elegant in the mouth, the palate reveals a beautiful, quiet intensity and long, earth-laced finish.  94+

High-tone, floral notes of violets and graphite layer with savory notes of sage and rosemary. A full bodied Cabernet Franc, structured and lush.
