2016 Cabernet Franc
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.
For 100 years, our family has been devoted to Oregon agriculture. Our history reflects a pioneering spirit, indefatigable work ethic and responsible land stewardship. The distinctive climate and soil composition of our vineyard lend to the intense, complex flavors in Cliff Creek Cellars wines.
With beautiful acidity makes it possible to pair with tomato-based dishes, vinegar-based sauces smoky BBQ or rich legumes like black beluga lentils.
