The last time I saw a wine that achieved a 100% taste to purchase ratio off our tasting machines, the wine became our best seller for 3 years running.
Field Trip Cab Franc has achieved that ratio - but it can't become our best selling wine. Why not? Because there are only 122 cases made. You read that correctly. Only 122 cases of this wine exist.
Why such a small amount?
Well, super well known and expensive wineries always have extra juice left over - and that extra wine gets gobbled up and usually blended into other wines to make them better etc. etc. In this particular case, we worked out a deal where the Echolands Winery was willing to bottle this wine, produced from two crazy nice vineyards, in a one time bottling for you guys, our amazing customers!
What's up with the wine?
As Walla Walla Valley grows its reputation among the wine aficionados, it’s Cabernet Sauvignon that has led the way, with Syrah perhaps not too far behind. But ask any winemaker there and they will sing the praises of Cabernet Franc, that tertiary grape among the Bordeaux triad. It’s not so unimportant in Bordeaux though; many of the most famed of Right Bank Bordeaux (you know, chateaux like Cheval Blanc, Angélus, Dôme, Lafleur, those kinds of place) believe in the grape’s inherent greatness.
But not everybody has figured it out yet. Far too many Walla Walla winemakers insert a little of Cab Franc in each of their Bordeaux blends but rarely let it take center stage. This Cab Franc-forward version hails from two of the region’s most important vineyards, Blue Hills Vineyard and Seven Hills Vineyard, the AVA’s most prestigious vineyard. Aged only in French barrique for 14 months, it should offer a worthwhile introduction into the grape’s success in Walla Walla.
I know I'm in for 6. First come, first served. Let's get to it!
