Winemaker Mark Beringer Notes
Concentrated flavors of cassis, and raspberry are complimented with a wonderful floral and spice bouquet that makes this a great Cabernet Franc. Enjoy the beauty of this varietal - so marvelously rich, smooth, dense, elegant, refined and delicate all at the same time. Perfect oak balance seamlessly supports the wine with notes of clove, dark chocolate, vanilla, nutmeg and a whisp of smoke. This wine is delicious now and will age well over the next decade.
