2022 Half Tonne Heroes Cabernet Franc


plum  |  fresh licorice  |  bay leaf  |  fine tannins


The 2022 vintage was tiny thanks to the challenging growing season.  The varieties most affected were Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris but as they say, good things come in small packages.  While quantity is down around 50%, quality is fantastic.
