Vinum Cellars’ 2009 “The Scrapper” Cabernet Franc comes from a small vineyard in the El Dorado Foothills that’s managed by veteran grower Ron Mansfield. This high elevation site (3,300 feet) produces excellent fruit and has made “The Scrapper” an award-winning wine for many vintages. The 2009 “The Scrapper” is medium brick red in color with flavors of ripe cassis, juicy black cherry, exotic spices, cinnamon, clove, star anise, sappy French oak, and elegant cedar notes. The wine finishes with lingering notes of wild back raspberry.
