Description

WINNER: Silver Medal in 2020 Berlin International Wine Competition - 92 Points

This elegant Cabernet Franc begins with notes of candied strawberries and dark plum compote on the nose, followed by hints of smoke and spice. Extra dry on the palate, the smooth tannins reveal a rich, fruity character which is balanced by its crisp acidity and lingering finish. Pair your Bella Terra Cabernet Franc with Chateaubriand, bearnaise sauce, and baked sweet potatoes.
