Cabernet Franc is the great patriarch of Bordeaux varietals, included in the parentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and even Sauvignon Blanc. Extremely aromatic, Cabernet Franc has an instantly recognizable, distinctive aroma, and a lighter, fresher body. Grown on 30 year old vines in our estate vineyard, the Cabernet Franc expresses the uniquely balanced fruity and savory aromatics typical of the variety. Soft and fresh on the palate this wine serves as an excellent accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes.
