2018 Carr Cabernet Franc, 332
Los Olivos District
101 Cases Produced
The 332 clone of Cabernet Franc has proven itself to be a standout in Santa Barbara County. 332 originates from the Loire Valley in France and captures the classic flavors of the Cabernet Franc grape. This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Franc 332 grown in the East end of the Santa Ynez Valley. The long hot summer days and hard rocky clay soils allow the vines to produce deep, rich flavors.
This single clone of 332 Cabernet Franc is as complex as it is smooth. Notes of crushed pepper and dry earth rise from the glass. The palate opens up with rich, bold flavors of dark cherry and raspberries. Bright, lean acids are followed by soft tannins and an exceptionally smooth finish.
