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. The flavor is defined by a balance between delicious black cherry cola, herbaceous aroma of thyme and oregano, with a peppery earthiness. Cabernet franc has medium acidity that makes it refreshingly easy-to-drink.

Vineyard Designation

Sams Valley
