Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This dark, captivating Cabernet Franc has aromas of oak with hints of chocolate. Oak, raspberry, and blackberry flavours combine with well structured tannin and crisp acidity to produce a long, smooth finish.
Awards
Gold - Taster's Guild International Judging, 2008 Gold - Pacific Rim International Wine Competition, 2008
Winemaker Notes
After the grapes were crushed and sent to stainless tanks they were cold soaked on their skins for 3 days prior to the yeast being added. Once fermented to dry, the wine was pressed and allowed to settle before being put into a combination of 2 to 4 year old American oak barrels. The wine was racked twice while in barrels. After 13 months, it was taken out of oak and blended before bottling in April 2007.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy it with spicy meat dishes or with rich foods that have a cream sauce.
