Cabernet Franc, an essential component of the great red wine blends of France’s Bordeaux region, prospers in the ancient alluvial soils, temperate climate and long growing season of our estate vineyard. Produced exclusively for our Wine Club, this very aromatic Cabernet Franc opens with a nose of crème brulee, strawberry, rainier cherries, rich earth and more subtle notes of vanilla and sweet spice. Intense flavors of dark fruit and chocolate show on the palate, with further layers of mint, bay leaves, white pepper and sugar snap peas. A medium-bodied wine with soft but firm tannins, serve with pork tenderloin, lamb cutlet or savory soups for a heavenly pairing.
