2012 Andrew Rich Cabernet Franc Red Willow Vineyard

image may not be actual bottle available

Bright, dark red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, cherry, coffee, tobacco leaf, peppery spices and wild herbs. Fine-grained and sharply delineated, offering subtle intensity to its juicy berry, spice and tobacco flavors. Classically dry but ripe on the firmly tannic finish. I'd give this a couple years in the cellar.

Available Vintages:

Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc is one on the major grape varietals of the world. Typically it is lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon, making a bright pale red wine that contributes finesse and lends a peppery perfume to blends with more robust grapes. Depending on the growing region and style of wine, the profile may include violet, cassis tobacco, and raspberry.

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: Oregon
Oregon is without a doubt establishing a reputation for producing to some of America’s finest wines, made from Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The Willamette Valley is the largest and most well known AVA. The Dundee and Eola hills, as well as Ribbon ridge are three of its most promising sub-regions.


Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
