I thought everyone might be interested in what is going on with my first attempt at cabernet franc.
Because my day job made it impossible to get out to the winery yesterday, Rich and Don did the pressing for me. He tells me we have about 25 gallons of wine that has "nice color, soft tannins" and is "fruity."
My wine is currently in glass carboys similar to those pictured (those aren’t actually mine) where they will undergo ML, which will probably take through the end of the year.
25 gallons translates to roughly 10 cases and by the time we’re done, probably 7 or 8.
That is more wine than I was expecting, so if anyone is interested, may be looking to unload a little.
