2018 Dewey's "Barsotti Vineyard" El Dorado County Cabernet Franc

SKU #1457536

In keeping with the growing trend of many fine boutique producers in northern California, Dewey's makes low-intervention, small-lot, single-site expressions from some of the Golden State's unheralded yet exceptional vineyards. Winemaker's notes: "In 2018 we jumped at the opportunity to work with a couple tons of cab franc from Barsotti. The grapes were fermented native, 100% whole-cluster, and punched down twice a day with two bare feet. We pressed gently to a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel barrels. Other than sulfur the wine received no additives."

I find the influx of attention that a new generation of winemakers is giving to the terroir rich vineyards of Sierra Foothills is an ecstatically energizing moment in California wine. Dewey hit the nail on the head with this pure expression of what high elevation Cabernet Franc can do. Sourced from the pink granite rich Barsotti vineyard, managed by sought after father & son team, Ron & Chuck Mansfield with an almost zen attention to detail, it is easy to see the correlation of intention & terroir in this wine. A nimble balance of red cherries, perfumed violets, fresh alpine herbs, green bell pepper, white pepper, and crunchy crushed rocks fill the glass while gracefully battling between its ethereal approach, and grippy finish. Those who enjoy spending a few hours watching how a wine evolves will be greatly rewarded with the subtle intricacies this Cabernet Franc reveals.
