Big and inky-black in the glass, the Paco Franco Cabernet Franc is a serious wine. Cedar spice and rich blackberry blend with fig and cassis to put forth a dynamite domestic Cab Franc. The finish is earthy, tobacco and currant with just a trace of black pepper. Pair this wine with a rack of lamb or a rustic mushroom dish and enjoy. Aged for 18 months in 50% French oak and 50% American oak. 100% Cabernet Franc. Only 99 cases produced.
Dave Harvey joins Bergevin Lane with over 23 years of winemaking experience in Washington State working for notable wineries such as Townshend Cellars, Gordon Brothers and Terra Blanca. “We asked Dave to join our team because of his seasoned experience with Washington vineyards and winemaking. He makes stylish and well-balanced wines - plus he’s a super nice guy,” says Amber Lane.
Established in 2002 by two friends pursuing a shared dream, Bergevin Lane Winery nurtures wines that embody the truly unique environment of Walla Walla, Columbia and Yakima Valleys and the distinct single vineyards from where the rich terrestrial wines come from. Bergevin's northerly latitude provides for an extended growing season with long sunshine filled days balanced by cool evening temperatures. This allows grapes to develop flavor and complexity slowly, while retaining natural acidity. We're a big fan of their wines and look forward to many more exciting vintages from Bergevin Lane.More from this winery
