Fogolar Wines 2015 Cabernet Franc, Picone Vineyard

This small production Franc is made at DiProfio Winery by Marc Pistor, it’s a 3-barrel, single vineyard selection with 15% whole cluster, 28-32 days on skins and 18 months in French and American oak … which could be its potential downfall. Don’t get me wrong, currently it’s a nice wine with tobacco, cassis and smoky notes, but those tannins are bruisers and the fruit may be overwhelmed by oak – time will tell so hold if you want to check out my theory, otherwise drink over the next 2-3 years.
Price: $44.40 – Rating: *** ½+
