Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Franc Stepping Stone Rutherford 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This elegant wine traces its origins to a vineyard on the eastern slopes of Rutherford. The property is owned and managed by Frank Woods, esteemed viticulturist with decades of experience. In 2004, this vineyard produced a small crop of extremely flavorful Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak for 16 months prior to bottling, this aromatic Cab Franc was judiciously blended with 9% Cabernet Sauvignon to add depth and complexity. The result is a traditional, old-world Cabernet Franc with concentration and integrated tannins typical of Rutherford fruit. Fragrant aromas of lavender and roses, rich with flavors of blueberry, black cherry, cassis and hints of chocolate. Supple tannins and a lush finish.
