Arbor Crest Cab Franc.
Our Cabernet Franc from the Columbia Valley is a delicious example of the traditional Bordeaux varietal. This wine is a sumptuous blend made from grapes grown in the prestigious Conner Lee Vineyard. This wine integrates a spicy herbalness with bright red fruit and jammy characters that unfold and linger on the palate. The elegance of this full-bodied wine weaves layer after layer of spicy oak, red currant, cedar and black raspberry flavors. Barrel aged in French oak for eighteen months, this wine will age gracefully for another 4-8 years.

Winemaker Kristina Mielke-van Loben Sels the second generation of the Mielke family to oversee Arbor Crest and brings both education and practical skill to her work. A University of California at Davis fermentation science graduate, Kristina came to Arbor Crest after several years at Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery in Healdsburg, California .Her husband, James van Loben Sels, is an experienced viticulturist, which complements Kristina's skills nicely. Together, these two understand the complexities of grapes, soil, trellising, pruning, irrigation, and winemaking. They also share duties as the winery's general managers.
