Description

Our first Cabernet Franc displays concentrated notes of dark chocolate and cherry with a touch of spice. This bold, cellar worthy red from the warm 2012 vintage will pair beautifully with grilled meats, roasted peppers, or sea salt dusted dark chocolates.

Winemaker’s Notes: This hand harvested beauty from the hot 2012 vintage is a cellar worthy bomb of dark chocolate, black cherry, and finely integrated tannins. A tannic, meaty, very masculine wine. Enjoy!

A nice job here from Greenlane. Notes of cherry and menthol run through the wine with herbal notes picking up on the palate. The acidity is high and while the tannins do turn a little bitter on the finish, they're not out of line. Drink now.
