Cabernet Franc

Sonoma Valley

 

Winemaker’s Notes

Cabernet Franc is a variety which we, true to Bordeaux winemaking tradition, blend into our Cabernet Sauvignon to give it a rich berry undertone. Once again we were able to set aside a portion of the Cabernet Franc to bottle on its own. Deep ruby in color with a spicy nose, this wine exhibits nuances of vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon boasting a rich berry palate of black cherries, blueberries and plum flavors. Good acidity and firm tannins are the hallmark of this vintage and give this wine great structure. Serve with cheese, red meat or game and earthy mushroom dishes.

Cabernet Franc accounts for only 1% of all red varietals planted in California. Since much of it goes into blends, a varietal labelled Cabernet Franc is quite rare!
