The Camel Hill Cabernet Franc, like all Michael’s red wines, undergoes native yeast fermentation and is unfined and unfiltered. It was aged in French and American oak barrels for 20 months. The 2016 Cabernet Franc expresses dark cherry and cranberry fruit with delicate herbal notes and layers of tobacco, pepper, and a gentle smokiness on the finish. The climate and elevation here on this site lend to bright acidity, lean mountain fruit character, and structured tannins. Rather than being overpowering, the subtleties of the fruit shine through and are complemented by the nuanced aromas and flavors from the seasoned oak barrels. This is a wine you can cellar or decant if opening in the near future. The Cabernet Franc becomes more expressive and delightful as it opens up in the glass
