Tasting Notes

: Cabernet Franc is the parent grape of both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet franc is a classic medium-bodied red with moderate tannins. This wine expresses fresh, bright, vibrant aromatics lifting and floating above the glass, brimming with intense floral notes, perfume, and sweet fruit. This wine was like a bouquet of flowers saved from a precious occasion, carefully hung upside down to dry and preserve the natural oils Like rose petals, hibiscus, violets, and carnations.

Vineyard Designation
