  • Spice up your life! Our Cabernet Franc offers aromatics of spice, cloves and anise. The flavors follow berry, currant and a little jam. The wine has a mid-weight attack, medium to full body. The tannins are well-integrated and well-balanced.

    Wine Profile
    Tasting Notes
    This is a deep, rich wine. The aromas are expressive with suggestions of ripe red and black cherries, vanilla and undertones of toasted oak. On the palate, the wine is rich with a full body and a rich texture. The flavors are dark ripe fruits suggesting black cherries and hints of blackberries. I find appealing undercurrents of grilled red pepper and smoky tones on the long finish. -Winemaker, Chris Corley
