This wine is 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a unique blend where Cabernet Franc is a lead in this dancing duo– usually Cabernet Sauvignon has that honor. These wines playing together create a very harmonious wine.
Cabernet Franc is a favorite because it brings together several varietals in a blend and is a great harmonizer. But Cabernet Franc is an exciting varietal because it gives vibrancy. Cabernet Franc gives both a floral bouquet but also gives a deep sense of earth.
This wine gives notes of roasted dark cherry, blackberry, baking spices, hint of vanilla, fennel and chocolate dust. Scent of mid-summer red roses, sweet cedar and leather.
