Wedge Mountain Winery 2014 Cabernet Franc, Wahluke Slope, $28

By on September 1, 2016

wedge-cab-francCharlie McKee quietly crafts delicious wines at his small facility in Peshastin, a tiny community not far from Leavenworth, Wash. Using grapes from the warm Wahluke Slope, he has produced a delicious Cab Franc with aromas of sage, clove and red cherry, followed by flavors of red and black fruit, along with licorice and a hint of spice rub. It’s all backed by brilliant acidity and mild tannins. It’s a gorgeous effort. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
