While Leah tends to lean on Old World winemaking styles, this lovely Cab Franc deftly walks the lines of New World fruitiness and Old World earthiness! We taste all sorts of berries, with a fresh tobacco leaf element and some Whiskey barrel notes, all tied together by a sturdy frame of acidity, and a silky-smooth finish! Yum!
Serve this lovely red wine with Beef Short Ribs.
Today, some buyers are rejecting 2020 bottles without even tasting them. I need to address this swiftly and intentionally, because it’s in many ways disloyal to our domestic industry. We all know that 2020 was a challenging year for many reasons. Our Pirate Princess on the label bears a mask to reflect the reality in of the pandemic. And I’m no stranger to wildfires. This is my fifth vintage dealing with smoke. And while 2020 presented some unprecedented circumstances in air quality and smoke coverage throughout the state, the vineyards in Southern Oregon were miraculously spared compared to other regions on the west coast. I feel relieved and confident in the wine I produced. My 2013, 2017 and 2018 Cabernet Francs detected as much smoke impact as 2020, and those wines have been celebrated with exceptional 90+ scores and “Best Buy” reviews.
Leah Jorgensen caught the Oregon Wine bug in 2004 while attending Oregon Pinot Camp and decided soon after that to move to the state where her ancestors had been farmers for generations! Having worked in the wine industry for many years, Leah started the winery under her own name, with a laser-beam focus on producing the best Cabernet Franc in Oregon.
We firmly believe Leah has succeeded in that endeavor, and she has also gone on to make some incredible Malbec (aka Cot), Gamay Noir and Sauvignon Blanc! Although she takes winemaking seriously, she loves to have fun, and we have had the pleasure of drinking her wines over a few laughs and good conversation over the years! We love this lady and her wines!!
