Midland Construction Cabernet Franc

In stock

Fresh, lighter, less extractive, valley Franc from the Shenandoah.

We picked relatively early in 2018 to preference freshness and fruit integrity, and as a result we adjusted our fermentation approach to be lighter and less extractive. Herbs and smoked tea accentuate the lacy red fruit and subtle structure. Aromatic presentation that moves with grace and poise across the palate.

The Jordan family and friends planted their first vineyard in 2007 at Mount Airy Farm in Fort Defiance, Virginia. Midland Construction was originally the name of Ted Jordan's carpentry business, founded in the 70s. In 2016 he passed the vineyard project to his three sons: Ben, Gray, and Tim, who operate as grape growers and wine producers today. The name, Midland Construction, acknowledges the work they do with their hands and backs, building a family wine business on the ridges and hillsides in the middle lands of the Shenandoah Valley. 

Our vines are planted on limestone based soils that represent a diversity of ancient conditions, some 450 million years ago, when the Shenandoah Valley was a shallow sea. The Shenandoah Valley is historically cooler and drier than the rest of Virginia, lending to fresh, digestible, and vibrant wines.
