Cabernet Franc (2019)

Volume 750ml  |  Alcohol 14.5%
Appellation Southern Oregon
Bottling Date 6/21/2022
Cases Produced 173
Designation Sundown

Patrick Spangler first won a Platinum for his Cabernet Franc program in 2006. This effort marks his sixth with Cab Franc, and its ranking as the top-scoring Cab Franc of the 2023 Platinum cements his reputation as one of the Pacific Northwest’s top talents with this sometimes-challenging variety. His traditional go-to-site has been Sundown Vineyard in the Medford suburbs, and this bottling is extraordinarily complex and balanced in its youth. There’s dark red fruit, violet, star anise, smoked nutmeg and moist cedar, along with composted earth and brown buttered shiitakes. The plush and bright finish is reminiscent of cranberry sauce. ~ Great Northwest Wine Platinum Awards 2023
