Another Estate-grown varietal that originated in France’s Basque Region. The Cabernet Franc was principally known as a companion to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot but has become a popular varietal in its own sense.
Color is dark brick red that becomes lighter as the wine ages. This wine is medium/full-bodied that offers a mint facet on the nose accompanied by typical earthiness and assorted berry fruits. Classic spices highlight the palate and lead to a fine tannic finish that stays with you for a time. 100% Cabernet Franc Estate fruit was utilized in this prime example of a classic Bordeaux-style wine. Any full-flavored meat with either chili (hot) or bell peppers (mild) as an accompaniment. Enjoy until 2025.
