This wine is made from our block of Cabernet Franc located at the very top of Bradford Mountain. With excellent root stock and clone selections, perfect micro-climate and classic red mountain-top soil, these Cabernet Franc grapes consistently develop wonderful flavors.
Higher acid levels and medium in body, this wine is very versatile in food-pairing. The herbal undertones create an amazing pairing with dishes such as pasta with a zesty tomato and basil sauce or garlic-rosemary pork tenderloin.
Moderate temperatures with no appreciable rainfall throughout the ripening season allowed the grapes to fully develop exceptionally concentrated flavors.
The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After cold-soaking for three days to extract rich color, the must fermented on the skins for three weeks to obtain a richly extracted wine.
