Classic notes of cassis, boysenberry and pie cherry with tobacco leaf and cigar box aromas from the Cabernet Franc (11%). Dusty cherry and Craisin flavors swirl within firm tannins and pleasing acidity, backed by light chocolate and Ancient Lakes minerality. It’s a delicious memento from the vintage when Jones of Washington reigned as Washington Winery of the Year in 2012 from Wine Press Northwest magazine.
