Division Béton 2022
Grape Varieties: 35% Cabernet Franc, 32% Côt, 24% Gamay, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Pinot Noir
The Béton blend features several grape varieties and fermentation techniques that all come together once blended after 5-6 months of aging. The heart of this wine is the Loire clone Cabernet Franc from the Applegate Valley fermented mostly whole cluster with natural yeasts both individually and co-fermented with Côt (Malbec). A new organic site near the western edge of the Yakima brought additional Côt with a delicious floral dimension. Gamay took a larger presence this vintage and smaller quantities of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon rounded out a special year of this wine.
