2001 Cabernet Franc, Santa Barbara County

Bedford 2001 Cab Franc yellow webIn 2001 we changed winemaking protocol for our reds to further increase the intensity of flavors. Frequent punch downs were employed as well as a method called “rack-and-return” or delestage. This process deconstructs the fruit to eventually construct a wine that magnifies the aromatics, flavors and texture. The fruit for this vintage is once again from the Thompson Vineyard in Los Alamos and the wine is 100 percent varietal as with all other past vintages. The 2001 vintage offers the same immense fruit reminiscent of ripe blackberries, blueberries and spice supported by a toasty vanilla component like the 2000 vintage. While the 2000 has a more dusty, earthy character reminiscent of older French wines, the 2001 offers more depth and weight. SOLD OUT!
