Danny Gordon and founding winemaker Ron Coleman continue to focus their attention on venerable Weinbau Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope for their single-variety Cabernet Franc bottling. The nose presents hints of black cherries, espresso and sweet herbs, and there’s a match on the palate. While there are substantial tannins — perhaps the thumbprint of Red Mountain fruit (9%) involved — these Walla Walla airport winemakers made certain there’s plenty of fruit to support that structure. Consider pairing this with lamb chops and mint jelly.
