2016 Cabernet Franc

Lonna's Block

This special block of Cabernet Franc is dedicated to Norma-Jane’s late sister Lonna who cared for the horses that resided at the end of the Cabernet Franc vines near York Road. Our Lonna’s Block Cabernet Franc was picked and fermented in wood fermentors before being aged in 225L French oak barrels about 50% of which were new.
