2017 Road Less Traveled Cabernet Franc

2017 Road Less Traveled Cabernet Franc
2017 Road Less Traveled Cabernet Franc

The Road Less Traveled is 100% Cabernet Franc that has an increasing quantity of Clone 214 Franc which leans less herbal and more blue fruits and sea salt flavors.  It pairs nicely with grilled pork chops, barbecue, turkey, and root vegetables. 

Tasting notes

Fragrant aromas of blackberry, black cherry, dried sage, tobacco and gravel with savory hints of leather, nutmeg, and allspice.  The mouthfeel is fresh and firm with dark fruit flavors of berries and cherries and dry gravelly tannins.  Very much a ripe European style of Cabernet Franc.

Production notes

All the Cabernet Franc grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted, and fermented by yeasts native to the respective vineyards.  Only the free run wine was retained to maximize the elegance of the Cabernet Franc.
