Alcohol : 12,5%
Grape(s) : Cabernet Franc
Localisation : Virginia, United States
Tasting Notes : A bright nose of black cherry and strawberry is accented on the palate with notes of dried tea leaves, white pepper, and musk. Enjoy now or age for three to five years.
Winemaking : Our single variety Cabernet Franc is harvested earlier than that used in our Meritage blend in order to achieve a lighter wine style. A short maceration takes place after fermentation, extracting delicate tannins and color. Aging occurs in 500 liter French oak puncheons and concrete tanks for nine months. Approximately one fifth of the oak used is new.
