Mayhem Merlot Cabernet Franc


These Cabernet Franc grapes were sourced from the Munson Mountain area. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tank with a portion undergoing wild ferment, after which it was barrelled down into only two barrels: one new French oak and the other neutral. Here it rested for 11 months while undergoing natural malolactic fermentation. Unfined and unfiltered.

The nose opens with the fruity characteristics of raspberry and blueberry followed by Red Velvet cake with subtle nuances of tobacco leaf, licorice root, and floral notes.

On the palate, the raspberry follows through accompanied by plum, chocolate, cedar, and cinnamon. A juicy fruit-forward wine with a round savory mid-palate.

“Without dilly dallying lets just open up the screwcap and hope for the best. Garnet colored. On the nose smokey black cherry, cranberries, rhubarb and chocolate. Nice start. On the palate some mild tannins with a little dusting of pepper. Frisky and juicy on the finish but enough underlying acidity to keep the wine on track. This is not a seamless and smooth wine neither is it disorganized into a state of mayhem. I only hoped it had just a bit more follow through on the palate but it could be the youngster in the wine. I would recommend decanting an hour prior to serving.”
