This Cabernet Franc, from one of our own vineyards in Fair Play, brings the character we love from this classic Bordeaux grape. As this wine opens up in your glass it shows dark fruit up front followed by brighter red fruit and herbal notes. You’ll find Bing cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavors throughout and spicy tannins in this medium-bodied wine. It has benefited from a year in bottle, during which the tannins have become smoother, and it will continue to benefit from aging if that’s your thing!
These grapes were picked at full flavor maturity, instead of picking solely based on sugar levels. Terry fermented this wine at a low temperature to preserve fruity aromatics and flavors.
Aged in 10% new French oak and 15% new American oak to balance the fruit and tannins.
Goat cheese salad with heirloom tomatoes. Fresh Mozzarella caprese salad. Manchego cheese. Roast turkey with cranberry – think Thanksgiving! Roasted or grilled vegetables, including stuffed bell peppers.
