Halcyon Wines Camino Alto Cabernet Franc 2019 (93 WE)

“This focused, concentrated and pure-tasting wine celebrates the grape variety’s natural red- and black-fruit flavors and enticing accents of bay leaf and black olive. It is well balanced, firmly textured with fine-grained tannins and only subtly oaky, giving it an uncomplicated elegance.”

    Tyler and Kim Elwell launched Halcyon Wines in 2013 after Tyler discovered an intriguing Cabernet Franc vineyard along the Central Coast—a varietal he always dreamed of working with. Tyler, who was raised in Santa Barbara, has since scoured the vineyards of California to find Cabernet Franc planted in a wide variety of climates and terroirs. Focusing on sustainably farmed vineyards and minimal winemaking, Halcyon highlights the versatility and range of an often misunderstood grape varietal. Cabernet Franc takes center stage in all it's forms - white, red, and bubbly. Kim has worked to express the energy and tone of these unique wines through artful labels and playlists of songs that pair with the wines. Together the Elwells combine their deep-rooted love of wine and California, bringing you a nouveau take on California Cabernet Franc.
