The Vais brothers have always enjoyed Cabernet Franc as it is produced in France’s Loire Valley, the historical source for many delightful French bistro wines. Searching in Sonoma County, they found a vineyard that produces Cabernet Franc grapes in this particular style – the Alegría Vineyard near Healdsburg. This 2013 Cabernet Franc's fresh aromas of boysenberry, violets, leather, and wet granite complement the ripe flavors of boysenberry, and cherry, backed by nice minerality and soft tannins. This is a deliciously fresh rendition of a Cabernet Franc.
