2014 Cabernet Franc
A bold Cabernet Franc with aromatics of redcurrant, red cherry, plum, cedar, and clove. Dense in the mid-palate and lightly sweet on the finish.The 2014 vintage gave us quite a large variation in styles of red wines – Cabernet Franc in particular was both dense and bold (for our later picks), and bright and red fruit driven (for the earlier picks). With this variation, we had many options for blending and ultimately chose to meld the two styles together for this Cabernet Franc. A bigger, bolder Cabernet Franc than we’ve bottled in previous years, the 2014 shows pronounced aromatics and a depth of tannin that we cannot always achieve in Virginia. Pair with beef steaks, lamb, ham, herb-based sauces, green olives and toasted walnuts. Enjoy!
