The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed, cold macerated for 24 hours and punched down throughout fermentation to extract as much flavor as possible. The wine was then pressed into barrels for malolactic fermentation and aged 20 months in French oak (25% new).
The Cabernet Franc from Bennett’s Vineyard is located on a hillside slope in Coombsville. Coombsville weather is moderated by its proximity to the San Pablo Bay, the inland extension of San Francisco Bay. Frosts are mitigated, fog covers settle more frequently and burn off later in the day than our neighbors to the North. The vines bud early and the grapes tend to be harvested later, making for a long, slow ripening period. Daily average high temperatures can be as much as ten degrees cooler during the hot months than most other appellations, and heatspikes tend to be less severe. All of this limits dehydration, preserves acidity levels, and generally aids even ripening patterns.
The 2019 Coquerel Cabernet Franc has a nice rich color with a highly aromatic nose featuring dark berry, cassis. The palate is rich and has dense tannins, long finish with black cherry and a hint of toast. While this wine drinks beautifully now it will continue to improve over the next decade. This wine would pair wonderfully with pork and lamb dishes. 100% Cabernet Franc, aged for 20 months in French oak (25% new).
