2014 Leopoldina Cabernet Franc
2014 was a vintage of harmony and balance; It's beautiful growing season was filled with soft light and cool length, perfectly highlighting our Western exposure Oakville vineyards - especially our Leopoldina vineyard.
Leopoldina Vineyard sits at 800 feet in elevation on the Oakville Bench, replete with red clay soils and steep, rocky slopes. The site yields a wine that is richly textured and structure driven. Enter 2014 Leopoldina Cabernet Franc:
Arresting in the seductive aromatics that pull you in. Gorgeous dried rose petal with bright cherry & raspberry notes. Bow rosin elements complex and define the aromatic lift. Perfectly integrated, each element shines and sings in concert. The senses are pleased and enlightened from visual cues through to the racing finish of focus and purity.
