Tasting Notes
Big aromas of fresh ripe cherry, currants, dried fig, dark chocolate, cigar tobacco, vanilla bean and spice. The palate is full bodied, with luscious flavours of ripe black cherry, dried Mission fig, dried cherry and currants. With silky tannins and a long, dry finish.

Winemaking Notes
This wine is 100% Cabernet Franc with 50% appassimento and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.  This wine will age in the cellar easily for 10+ years and is drinking very well now.

Wine and Food Pairing
Serve this wine alongside heart and slow braised dishes like Osso Bucco, Rack of Lamb, Chateaubriand, smoked turkey breast, stews, wild mushroom risotto with truffle, cheese boards with charcuterie, with a cigar, or by itself with friends… good friends.
