Wine of the Month for December
Enjoy celebrating the holidays with our new release, 2015 Cabernet Franc. Our 2015 Cabernet Franc recently won a silver at the 2017 Texas International Wine Competition. This vintage is typical of Cabernet Franc- medium bodied, savory, dry, spicy finish.
A deep thinking wine, earthy, tobacco, roasted pepper, mineral driven, smoky. This silky red pairs well with any food that features fresh herbs; smoky pulled pork & Bourbon sauce; traditional American spaghetti and meatballs, or Pomodoro sauce; portabella mushroom & goat cheese ravioli; sweet potatoes with Rosemary; and dark chocolate covered cranberries.
The 2015 growing season had excellent weather: light spring rains with a hot and dry summer- this allowed for full and balanced fruit ripening. Our harvest was fairly manageable with these grapes coming from two vineyard blocks: Henslee and Old Place.
During fermentation we utilized cryo-maceration- the fruit was flash frozen and then thawed. This approach brings out color and phenol compounds. The wine was aged in oak barrels for about 18 months.
Did you know… Cabernet Franc is the ‘father’ of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Limited number of cases, only available to wine club members.
