Cabernet Franc 2017

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.  2017 Dyer Vineyard Cabernet Franc is our current vintage.

What one critic says…

Dyer’s 2017 Cabernet Franc is positively dazzling. Rich and explosive, with tremendous energy, the Franc is deeply impressive from the very first taste. Varietal notes are amped up in a vibrant, sizzling Cabernet Franc full of personality. Crushed rocks, mocha and red stone fruits are some of the many aromas and flavors that build as this 2017 shows off its alluring personality.

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