Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This is our 21st edition of Cabernet Franc. Deep, dark ruby color and bursting with aromas of black raspberry, cherry, and red currant, with hints of pencil shavings, rose petals, cedar and vanilla. Flavors mirror fruit aromas, adding blueberry, anise, espresso and cocoa powder. The lingering finish recalls creme brulee, graphite and roasted nuts.
