The vineyard currently known as Harry's Hill, off Granite Springs Road in Fair Play, was originally planted in 1954, and was one of the first planted vineyards in Fair Play. The vineyard is now planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Franc. The vineyard has deep alluvial sand soils that provide excellent drainage for grape growing. The wines from this vineyard have been poured at the White House several times over the years.
The 2017 vintage brings clove, allspice, black currant and bing cherry aromas with flavors of cherry, currants, and earthy spice baking spices like nutmeg on the finish.
We aged this wine in 75% new French Oak and 25% neutral oak for 20 months.
Cabernet Franc traditionally pairs with recipes with a variety of fresh herbs included. Goat cheese is also a traditional pairing, as are beluga lentils. Roast chicken or pork are great meat options for pairing.
