2015 Moody Vineyard Cabernet Franc

2015 Moody Vineyard Cabernet Franc

$44.00

Wine Club Price: $39.60

These Cabernet Franc vines enjoy long sunny days and cool night breezes. This medium-bodied beauty is centered around a dark fruit and toasted vanilla palate.

A toasted vanilla and lilac nose accompany this medium-bodied, fruit centric palate with beautiful undertones of dark plum and cassis. Notable tannins round out the dried apricot finish. Cabernet Franc is a wonderfully versatile pairing wine that holds up nicely to tomato based dishes like pasta and pizza while easily balancing difficult herbal flavors like oregano, sage and rosemary. One of our favorite and simple pairing recipes is Jocelyn’s Sundried Tomato and Goat Cheese Frittata – recipe card is included with the purchase of the wine. Limited production of 100 cases. pH 3.60 and TA 5.4, our Cabernet Franc cellars beautifully for up to 15 years.

It is sourced from the Moody Vineyard sits at the magic 1,000 foot level atop 900 feet of sand and gravel at the mouth of the Deschutes River and Columbia River, about 30 miles east of Hood River owned and operated by Lonnie and John Williams. A breezy south-facing vineyard that tilts north to moderate the midday sun borders the Eastern Oregon desert and has an annual rainfall of less than 20 inches per year. This is in stark comparison to the Dampier Vineyard, which has almost triple the rainfall at about 58 inches per year only 35 miles away! The enchanting Moody Vineyard produces top quality varietals such as Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Viognier. Because of the dry climate with higher temperatures during the day, and cooling river and Mt. Hood downslope breezes at night, grapes from Moody Vineyard thrive as they do in the Bordeaux and Rhone regions of France.
