2020 Two Blondes Cab Franc

2020 Two Blondes Cabernet Franc

The 2020 Two Blondes Cab Franc starts off with notes of ripe blackberry, red plum, cedar, wet stone, forest floor, oregano, menthol. The wine is medium to full bodied with bright acid surrounding a solid core of black cherry and graphite. The tannins work to provide a structure to this wine without overpowering the more subtle notes on the long finish of tart red currant. This is a wine that is enjoyable now but will continue to get more complex with another year or two. This is another shining example of why Washington State is such a great region for growing and producing Cabernet Franc.

The 2020 Vintage was a relatively even growing season which started slightly later than normal. The summer months were marginally cooler than past few vintages which carried on into early fall. One of the markers for the vintage will be the consecutive cold snaps in October, forcing us to make quick picking decisions to avoid frost damage. In the end we did not see any frost damage or issues with our fruit.
