Yakima Valley, Washington
Sits at the same latitude as the Loire Valley in France but with a cooler climate that is perfect for Cabernet Franc grapes. A total of 17 hours of summer sunshine per day (more than California).
Expect ripe raspberry and red currant notes with black pepper and fresh mint leaf notes with a solid tannin providing mouth feel and structure.
Consider pairing with herb-crusted lamb, a paprika-rich goulash stew, or aged cheddar.
