Elegant aromas of crushed cherries, pomegranate and vanilla open to a soft, silky mouthfeel with flavors of rich red plum and baked blackberry. Subtle hints of nutmeg and allspice draw from well-integrated oak aging, balanced by soft fruit tannins.
This 2013 vintage Cabernet franc from the estate vineyard has a bright fresh cranberry fruity nose with hints of black berries and red bing cherries. Hints of mint and eucalyptus are a common character of this vineyard for the Cab franc, and this year is no exception. Acidity, tannin and minerality are all to be found in this wine which makes it ideal for long term aging, or paring with your favourite hearty dish.
Pairs with wine braised short ribs and creamy polenta, herb crusted lamb chops, grilled portabella mushroom burger with roasted red peppers, onions and aioli. Braised greens with smoky bacon, roasted sweet potatoes with smoked paprika.
