2013 Reserve Cabernet Franc
Ironstone’s Reserve program focuses on quality at all ends of the wine making spectrum. As a result, the Reserve wines are the finest products Ironstone Vineyards has to offer and the Reserve Cabernet Franc is a perfect example of that superior quality. This seductive, full bodied wine was produced from premium grapes that were hand selected from our top vineyards in the Sierra Foothills of Calaveras County. After undergoing extended fermentation and maceration, the wine was aged in French and American oak for 18 months with additional bottle aging prior to release. The Reserve series’ unique aging process of using small oak casks stored in underground caverns ensures a fuller, richer, finer wine of true varietal character.
