The Walla Walla AVA encompasses each Oregon and Washington wineries, the place the times are heat and sunny and the nights are cool. Total, this local weather is a good recipe for grape rising. Cabernet franc is a finicky grape and may present itself fairly otherwise relying on the local weather by which it’s cultivated, winery websites, and naturally the rising season at giant. Echolands’ Cabernet Franc is from the Blue Mountain Winery, which is considered one of many premium grape rising websites within the area, so we’re excited and prepared to do this wine.
With a deep ruby shade, the wine is signified by black fruits, corresponding to black cherry, black currant, and blackberry, on the nostril. A touch of raspberry and purple cherry enters, alongside delicate floral notes of violet and blossom, then some herbaceous leafy notes, and a touch of eucalyptus/mint. On the palate, the identical great black fruits present up immediately, and are effectively complemented by the reasonable tannins and acid, balanced with an identical reasonable physique and the identical taste depth. The alcohol on this wine is ideal, hugging the opposite components within the wine. The herbaceous and natural components are current all through, the licorice coming via particularly on the end.
It is a great iteration of an American made Cabernet Franc, the place the terroir of Walla Walla shines via. It’s a well-balanced wine and made to be loved now, with out additional ageing.
