A Cabernet Franc that shows loads of dark fruit such as plums and cranberries with earthy, chocolate tones following through. The full-bodied wine expresses juicy tannins with a rich finish on the palate.
100% estate grown grapes from Dry Creek Vineyard, planted in 2009.
100% Cabernet Franc
Grapes from a few vineyard rows were selected in the crafting of this Cabernet Franc Reserve. Grapes were picked late in the season for optimal ripeness. A combination of extraction techniques were used to develop a deep colour with maximum flavour. Some extended skin maceration after fermentation to add body and structure to the wine. Barrel matured for 15 months in a combination of 40% new oak and 60% neutral oak. 70% were French oak barrels, and the remainder were American oak.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this versatile wine on its own by the fireplace, or pair with grilled steak, roasted eggplant, and root vegetables.
