Tasting Notes
This elegant Cabernet Franc Reserve has earthy characteristics along with the aromas of blackberry, rosemary, and floral notes of lavender, roses and violets. This full-bodied, well-balanced wine features notes of blueberry, blackberry and liquorice, very soft and ripe tannins, and a long finish. Decant this wine to aerate it and open up the aromas and flavours.

Vineyard Notes
Dry Creek Vineyard
Winemaker Notes
A portion of the Cabernet Franc grapes were vinified in a passimento style. These grapes were air dried over a period of six weeks, leaving the winemaker highly concentrated, partially raisinated, Cabernet Franc berries. These berries were then fermented in open top French oak barrels over the period of a month. Then the wine was aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this versatile wine on its own, or pair with beef tenderloin or another lean barbeque meat with mushroom risotto.

We're not connoisseurs! We just opened this wine, used it cooking a roast, and then paired it with dinner. Outstanding!
