Hand-harvested from Sawmill Creek Vineyards with
a second manual hand sort at the winery. This limited release Cabernet Franc is only made when the vintage calls for it. All aspects of production, from press to bottle, occur on-site; fostering the ideal that a world class wine is handled by its makers from start to finish.
Essence is a full bodied Bordeaux style blend of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, and 33% Merlot. All grapes are handpicked and hand-sorted and each barrel is carefully selected for a perfectly balanced blend.
