Domanico Cellars 2013 Domanico Vineyard La Fille Estate Cabernet Franc, Yakima Valey, $32

By on February 3, 2017

Grower/winemaker Jason Domanico credits his wife, Jill, as the winemaker for their latest Cabernet Franc. That’s why it’s named La Fille, which translates to “the girl.” She made the picking decision from their vineyard, a choice that was 10 days later than Jason initially wanted. As a result, he had her make all of the other decisions regarding this Cab Franc, including 24 months in new French oak. It’s floral, herbal and fruity, opening with blueberry, cola and mocha with green peppercorn notes. Juicy raspberry acidity, soft tannins and dark cassis finish make this quite approachable and ready to enjoy with pork or other rich dishes.
