Ravine Vineyard 2010 Cabernet Franc – Picone Vineyard
The Ravine winery usually gets their fruit from their St. David’s property, but something has lured their winemaker, Shauna White to Vinemount Ridge’s Picone Vineyard to work with this handpicked/hand sorted fruit … she then popped it into barrels for 10 months (72% French – 28% American – 10% New) giving this wine the kiss of oak it required to show its full potential. The aromas are black cherry, white pepper and a touch smoky, while the palate shows real depth of fruit and flavor starting with plum and black cherry, moving on to white pepper , tobacco, smoke, cran-cherry and anise seed … add to that a long finish and you’ve got yourself a beauty in the glass. Price: $40.00 – Rating: ****+
