Released November 2008

Very limited 24 cases bottled

2006 SHERIDAN CABERNET FRANC

Bottled from the best single barrel (a new Taransaud) of the '06 vintage, after 20 months cellaring, this incredible luscious and flavorful wine is a stunning example of Washington State Cabernet Franc. Crushed dark fruit, smoke and earth on the nose, its rich sensual texture and flavors are balanced by superb tannins and acidity. The black cherry and loganberry notes are layered with coca, espresso and tobacco. The fullness of the mid-palate and the length of the finish are impressive. OH Yeah!

ORIGIN OF GRAPE
The fruit for this wine comes from Sheridan Vineyards in Zillah, in the Yakima Valley AVA. The vineyard sits on a hill with an elevation from 1120 to 1220 feet; soils are shallow, diverse and rich in micronutrients. Due to elevation the vineyard is a warmer site on the cooler region of the Yakima Valley. The vineyard naturally produces berries that are small and intense in flavor and color making Sheridan very special.
