SKU: Cabernet Franc 2020

Cabernet Franc is considered a signature grape of our wine growing region, and we celebrate it as such. This 2020 vintage is one of our most versatile wines, highlighting the varietals specific aromatics while bringing out the subtle textures that reside in the grape’s skin.  Here you’ll find notes of sour cherry and pomegranate with hints of raspberry, blackberry and roasted pepper on the palate, and a finish that has a pleasant acidity. We recommend enjoying glasses by the fire or backyard grill or with family around the table.

Nose:  pomegranate, tarragon, golden raspberry, sour cherry

Palate:  raspberry, blackberry, roasted pepper, white pepper 

Finish:  tart acidity, medium tannins, grippy finish
