The hand-harvested grapes were grown in our Grand Mesa
Vineyard overlooking the Colorado River. At nearly 200 feet
above the river valley our vineyard benefits from the canyon
breezes, moderating vineyard temperatures during the sometimes
hot summers of western Colorado. The vineyard is surrounded
by pear, peach and apple orchards, a testament to the fact
the area is a perfect environment for optimum fruit growing.
Our production was limited to 2.5 tons per acre.
Earthy scents of black currant and raspberry are accented
with oaky tones in Plum Creek's Cabernet Franc. The wine was
aged 11 months in French and Hungarian oak barrels to heighten
the wine's intense chocolate and vanilla finish.
