Cam Confidential
This is only the second time in 10 years I have been able to offer a standalone Cabernet Franc. I sourced this particular cuvée indirectly and can’t reveal the vineyard source in writing – however, I can tell you that the wine is typically sold as part of their single vineyard designate program at $50/bottle. They simply had a little excess cuvée (that is, the same wine they bottle), and I was more than happy to scoop it up. High-altitude volcanic sourcing, 60% new oak. Only 250 cases available.
