From the Winemaker

"The Cabernet Franc varietal is one of my absolute favorites. The savory notes in the wine combined with the bright fruit tones - cherries, cranberries and blueberries - make it feel so complete on the palate. Our Cabernet Franc is so versatile in terms of pairings - think wild mushroom risotto on a cool rainy evening. How romantic!" -Jennifer Higgins

Tasting Notes

The 2016 vintage produced fruit of exceptional quality with depth of flavor and texture. The nose is extraordinary: Dried cranberry and red cherry infused with dark gingerbread spice, orange peel, anise, and a peppercorn medley. Pfeffernusse comes to mind! The aromas match the flavors- juicy red fruits laced with savory notes that bring dimension and complexity to the winery. The texture feels both weighty and delicate as a result of its gentle tannins. We recommend decanting for an hour or two to enjoy the full experience.
