This Cabernet Franc was the last variety to be picked during the 2004 harvest. The longer hang time resulted in concentrated fruit without extremely high sugar, a nice characteristic of this variety. The fruit was originally contracted to a winery in Northern California and the fermentation was completed there in 1 ½ ton open top fermenters that were punched down 2 times per day. Subsequently, we negotiated to bring the wine back to Cass Winery where we barrel aged the wine 23 months and racked it after 16 months.
