Tasting Notes

Casa de Vinas has become a staple for Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah in the NC portfolio. In 2011, we planted Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot as well as Carmenere to extend our sourcing of Bordeaux varieties. Quite frankly, the fruit from Casa is prized because of the care and attention to detail from Julio Covarrubias. His hand is tried and true when it comes to farming wine in the Livermore Valley. The 2014 Cabernet Franc is our second offering from these plantings. The wine is concentrated with red berry fruit leading the way as herbal driven undertones follow. Moderate acidity keeps tension in this beautiful single variety farmed and produced with love.
