Tasting Notes

Telltale wisps of fresh green pepper and tomato leaf introduce this rare varietal Cabernet Franc from the Gard in Southern France. It’s rounder and plummier than counterparts from the Loire or Bordeaux but the pristine blackberry and cassis flavors maintain vitality augmented by hints of graphite. Full bodied and rimmed with soft, furry tannins, this wine is approachable young.
