LANG & REED 2011 CABERNET FRANC NORTH COAST 750mL

Lang & Reed's 2011 is an assemblage of three vineyards, stretching from the western shores of Clear Lake to the northern reaches of Lake County. The High Chaparral Vineyard, located high up in the real red hills of Lake County just north of Kelseyville was planted back in the 70’s. It is the only Cabernet Franc vineyard we know of that is planted on its own roots—a true Franc de Pied providing deep structure and lovely fruit tannins. Also above the 2,000ft elevation in the High Valley appellation of Lake County are the Cross Spring Vineyards and La Sierra. The grapes from here provide Lang & Reed with an exciting facet in their goal to express ‘typicity’ in their North Coast bottling.

The 2011 North Coast Cabernet Franc has a bright, clear violet blue color. The aromas display firm red berry, gentle lavender and licorice overtones. The palate provides a supple counter to the bright aromas yet shows a slightly huskier structure than most recent past vintages. Its vibrancy makes for early enjoyment but its structure and firm tannins will allow for some softening with cellar aging. Brilliant when shared and enjoyed among family and friends!
