Kestrel Cabernet Franc Yakima Valley Winemaker's Select 2006

Member Review by khaskins:

I grabbed a glass of this at a BBQ where we had all brought wine and thought I was drinking a really good Cabernet Sauvignon. This is an outstanding wine comparable with reserve Cabs costing a lot more. Although I not surprised I was impressed by a top shelf wine from Prosser, WA. This is one of the ten best wines I've drunk so far in 2011.

We opened our winery in early 1999 on three acres in the Prosser Wine and Food Park. Our winery building is 15,000 square feet, which includes a 13,500 square foot cellar, tank, warehouse and barrel area as well as a 1,500 square foot tasting room, gift shop and office. We opened our doors as a 3,000 case winery and are now at approximately 35,000 cases. We are predominately a red wine producer with 90% of our production in Lady in Red, our red table blend, as well as our red varietals - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. The remaining 10% is in Platinum - a blend of Gewurztraminer and Viognier, as well as Chardonnay and Viognier varietals. Barrel aging plays an important part in our wine production. Our wines are aged one-to-two years in the finest French, American and Hungarian oak barrels and provided bottle aging prior to release. Read less
