2012 Cabernet Franc

Spice and bright red cherry fruit up front, followed by cassis, allspice, and a smooth black pepper finish that is characteristic of this varietal in Virginia. Hints of chocolate and coffee complement the smoky oak from American and French barrels. Look for these flavors to continue to intensify with age. Enjoy this with a slow simmered beef stew or any tomato-based dishes, such as Italian cuisine.
