2017 Gustaf Cabernet Franc
Our 2017 Gustaf is a unique blend of 85% Cabernet Franc with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petite Verdot…named appropriately in honor of 4 generations of Anderson men!
Gustaf opens with rich raspberry and blackberry fruit surrounded by bramble and dried herbs such as thyme and savory baking spices. This wine is a bit tight and structured at first, but brings loads of power and lots of texture in the upper palate. A burgeoning richness is just waiting for a little air in the decanter and will age beautifully!
Gustaf spent 20 month in 100% new French oak and was bottled in August of 2019.
