Frenchtown, Walla Walla Valley’s first settlement, was founded by French Canadians in the early 1800s. A thriving viticulture and winemaking community was established in the valley by the 1860s. This Frenchtown wine salutes these pioneers. With the highest quality in mind, this blend offers exceptional value for its price.
Winemaking Notes: The wine was aged for 9 months in primarily neutral French and American oak barrels. It was then bottle aged an additional 6 months prior to release.
Tasting Notes: Frenchtown shows aromas of wild berries, red cherry, black currant, and spice. The generous, fresh fruit flavors remain focused through an integrated finish.
