Tasting Note: A straightforward cough syrup experience.

Garnet in color this cabernet franc has a nose of black fruit, burnt tobacco, and raspberry.

On the palate the wine is medium in tannin with flavors of purple fruit, cough syrup and heavily-browned toast.

Bottle Note: Sierra Ridge was established by the Bree family in 1989, and is situated along Ridge Road, south of Sutter Creek, in Amador County. Our ridge top location, it is ideal combination of rocky volcanic soil, and nearly perfect climate, provides the conditions necessary for growing the highest quality grapes, and producing the most flavorful wine. We make a variety of wines, some commonly recognized, and others found exclusively at Sierra Ridge. If you’re a taste pioneer and tend not to follow established trends, then come up to Sierra Ridge for some of Amador County’s most unique wine.
