2014 CHINOOK CABERNET FRANC
Wow, this is the stuff! We are not keen on the bell pepper note of underripe Cabernet Franc fruit. After tasting the 2014 Chinook Cabernet Franc, we clearly saw the beauty of this variety at its best. Clay Mackay said, “it has to be ripe”and he did that. A blend of one third Chinook Estate fruit and three clones of Boushey Vineyard fruit, the wine has a clean aroma, scented with wood, but not dominated by it. There is a pomegranite middle palate, and a hint of Cuban tobacco leaf. The fruit is bold and bright, and screams for skirt steak with a splash of chimichurri sauce.
