Sultry Cabernet Franc 2006

Originally planted to use in our Bordeaux blends this amazing wine will surprise you with its yin/yang combination of power and elegance.

This wine will pair with almost all meats, red or white but also loves creamy dishes such as stroganoff or crème brûlée.

Tasting Notes

The nose is stunning! It has style and an abundance of sultry elegance presented in a seductive fashion with an exotic roasted nut and dark fruit character. A fabulous palate. Surprisingly approachable because it is so elegant and balanced with rich, rounded dark fruits and mineral notes while ripe, supple tannin underpin the entire taste experience.
