Palate

Allowed to thoroughly ripen on the vine with flavors of red currents, violets, herbs, pepper and spice compliment a rich mouth feel. The finish is long with tobacco, caramel and toast aromas.

Aging

100% of Cabernet Franc is aged in oak barrels with 40% of those barrels being new oak. Of that new oak 25% is French oak and 75% is three year air dried American oak. The balance of barrels is 1 and 2 years old. Neutral barrels may be substituted in at racking to prevent the wine from being over oaked.
