Camp Cabernet Franc, Sonoma County '17

Winemaker and owner of Camp, Kenny Likitprakong, has built his winery upon years of experience through traveling, with a lens focused through viticulture.  Once he was ready to settle down, Kenny eventually applied his experiences toward his approach in winemaking.

The great thing is that Kenny doesn't feel the need to be tied down to one prototype when it comes to style or place to represent in California so instead, he presents a variety of wines and sites that he sources from, through a collective group of various labels.  So far, we have featured Folk Machine, Hobo Wine Co. and today we feature Camp.

One thing the wines all have in common, is its holistic approach to winemaking.  No additive or fermentation aids are used.  Kenny employs 100% native yeasts, minimal new oak usage and aged in real oak barrels and/or stainless steel tanks vs. alternatives or flavoring agents.

Camp was created in 2013 to showcase both the quality and value of wines found in Sonoma. Kenny works with some of the top growers and vineyard managers in high quality and mindfully farmed, though lesser know, vineyards throughout Sonoma to produce table ready, food friendly, wines that are easily accessible and of great value.

The Cabernet Franc is sourced from the organic Mojon’s Bench vineyard in Alexander Valley and  the organic and biodynamic Puma Springs vineyard in Dry Creek Valley.  The winemaking is done with partial whole cluster fermentation, and then eventually aged in 1-4 year old, neutral French oak barrels. 

The intention with this bottling is to produce lean, almost herbaceous Cabernet Franc that has structurual and varietal integrity.  Expect a lighter-bodied, elegant style here that is varietally focused with fresh energy.  Have fun and pair this with hearty seafood options, soft cheeses or grilled meats.
