2014 Cabernet Franc
This delicious Cabernet Franc is a product of our own Clarksburg appellation and is a wonderful expression of our unique terroir. The bouquet is rich and complex, with layers of ripe cherry, dried herbs, sweet oak, violets and black licorice. With time in the glass this remarkable wine opens to show exotic notes of anise, hard candy, raspberry and strawberry shortcake, with toasty vanilla nuances. The mouth-feel is rich and structured, with excellent balance, ripe tannins, fresh acidity and flavorful mid-palate. While perfect with soft cheeses like Camembert and Brie, this new release is a happy companion to grilled Salmon with tomato and basil, Porcini Risotto, and pork tenderloin with roasted plums and rosemary.
