Cabernet Franc Day 2023
2020 Reserve Cabernet Franc
Our 2020 Estate Reserve Cabernet Franc is a dry, medium to almost full bodied red. Good acidity balance, good tannin balance and some smoky undertones. This wine is a very balanced red- the tannin, the acid, the oak, the alcohol, all balance out in the glass and on the palate.
Blueberries, ripe plums, pepper, smoke and hints of oak really make this wine complex and savory. This wine will continue to age very well in bottles- set a few aside and come back in 3 years and see how it has changed.
Due to back-to-back frosts on the High Plains in 2020, our vineyards suffered substantial crop losses. While 2019 was a bountiful year, 2020 was not. The bright spot in not having the normal tonnages we annually produce, what fruit we did produce was fantastic quality. The 2020 Cab Franc Reserve was a small batch lot that was aged in new American and French oak barrels for twenty-four months.
Only six barrels of 2020 Reserve Cabernet Franc were produced. The wine was made in a traditional French fashion with no tannin additives or other flavor “enhancers”. The wine was simply fermented on its skins for seven days and then gently pressed into barrels and aged for two years. This is a wine you can keep in the cellar for five to six years, and it will continue to evolve and grow more complex.
Because of the limit number of bottles this wine has been and well remain a Bingham wine club exclusive.
