Cathedral Ridge Winery 2012 Moody Vineyard Cabernet Franc, Columbia Valley, $44

By on January 5, 2015

cathedral-ridge-winery-cabernet-franc-2012-bottleHood River, Ore., vintners Robb Bell and Michael Sebastiani add Cabernet Franc as a stand-alone variety with this vineyard-designate from Moody Vineyard. It doesn’t offer as much of the herbal tones that many Francophiles crave as the focus is on dried currant, Montmorency cherry and rose hips with red pepper flakes in the finish.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 175 cases

Alcohol: 12.3%
