I spent a wonderful day at Cadence in Seattle. Just a husband and wife operation in a very industrial area of Seattle. I punched down caps, sorted some Cab Franc, and put some labels on wines. It was a great experience and they craft some lovely wines made the right way. Google Cadence and wine. Hey, check out the wine list at Charlie Trotter’s and you’ll find them! How about that!

Here is the text about the 2002 Bel Canto:

2002 Bel Canto, Red Mountain
The aromatic nose immediately seduces with dusty blackberry and strawberry fruit mixed with graphite and star anise. The silky feel of Red Mountain Cabernet Franc immediately coats the mouth. The palate has layered black fruits and spice, with waves of flavors carrying through the long, spicy finish. The flavors are framed by persistent powerful tannins and balanced acidity. 48% Cabernet Franc (Ciel du Cheval Vineyard), 48% Merlot (Tapteil Vineyard), 4% Petit Verdot (Ciel du Cheval Vineyard). 90 case production

90 cases? Get outta town!
