We're in the Williamette valley Oregon, home to lakes, mountains and banging wines. This is a 60/40 blend of Cab Sav and Cab Franc that belies the sterotype of the main grape. Medium bodied, hauntingly aromatic and elegantly fresh - on first sip this seems to have more in common with a Pinot Noir than Cabernet Sauvignon. The cooling influence of the mountains leading to a restrained and sensual expression of the Cabernets.
For those of you that want to try something super high quality but a little of piste this is a great middle ground between the more classic styles of Pinot Noir vs Bordeaux blends.
