2016 "The Crooked Arm" Red Mountain Vineyard Cab Franc 1500mL

2016 "The Crooked Arm" Red Mountain Vineyard Cab Franc 1500mL
2016 "The Crooked Arm" Red Mountain Vineyard Cab Franc 1500mL

It hails from our Estate block within Red Mtn. Vineyard, one of the main vineyard components of The Archimage and The Illusionist. In 2016, this block really excelled, and it shows incredible Cab Franc purity, with tobacco leaf notes intermingled with spicy red fruits, and that classic Red Mtn. minerality. It has tremendous length, with broad tannins that expand the mouthfeel, and counterbalance the plushness of this rich wine. We blended most of this wine into our flagship Reserve blend, the 2016 Archimage. But we had to keep a 300L barrel of this wine out to bottle it separately. We are glad we did, and you will be too!

"There’s a single barrel of the 2016 Cabernet Franc The Crooked Arm and it’s a total blockbuster and up with the top wines in the vintage. Made from 100% Cabernet Franc from Red Mountain that spent 20 months in a new French oak barrel, it has riveting complexity in its cassis, forest floor, scorched earth, graphite, and spice-laced aromas and flavors. Deep, medium to full-bodied and with classic Red Mountain structure and power, it’s nevertheless seamless and silky. It’s a brilliant wine and hats off to the team at Sleight of Hand for this awesome wine."
