Medium intensity with dominant characters of blackcurrant, supported by dry herbs, chocolate, game fennel and subtle perfumed notes.
The 2015 Cabernet Franc presents a nose of roasted red pepper and prune that lengthens with oaky and spicy tones. On the palate, this wine displays great elegance with soft tannins and a smooth long finish. Coming from an exceptionally hot summer this wine will benefit from decantering to reveal the depth of its character - serve with brisket and red sauce pasta dishes.
The must was fermented in open-top fermenters combining daily punchdowns with pump-overs for a gentle, but good extraction of tannins, color and flavors. The wine was gently pressed and transferred into European and American oak barrels, where it developed further complexity for 18 months before being filtered and stabilized for bottling.
Description: Medium intensity with leather, smoked meat, dark cherry, sun dried tomatoes, finishing with hearty tannins. The combination of European and American oak adds layers of spicy flavors.
