Product Description:

"Sacre bleu! If we didn’t actually make this wine, we would have thought it was from Cabernet Franc's native home of Chinon in the Loire Valley of France. It’s crisp and earthy with a potpourri of herbs. This style is rare in the New World, as any hint of green, or herbs, in Cab based wines makes most winemakers apoplectic. (Whew, we were wondering how we were going to use that vocabulary word in a sentence today). But green in Cabernet Franc can be absolutely fantastic. This wine shows an extremely perfumed nose of black fruit, rosemary and thyme, exhibiting firm acidity, moderate alcohol and a diuturnal length - an absolutely stunning wine. Please don’t buy this wine. We only have 225 cases. We want to drink it all ourselves." -Winery
