Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We are huge Cabernet Franc fans at Chateau Tumbleweed and each year we’re torn over blending this single Cab Franc barrel away into Lil Frankie. In our third year working with this fruit, we decided we had to bottle it separately. Rolling View Vineyard has an austerity and restraint unlike its next-door neighbors – one that suits Bordeaux varietals especially well. This wine has an amazing interplay of acid and tannin, a cool dusty spice and classic Cab Franc fruit characters.
