On the nose, this wine is extraordinarily aromatic, with deep, rich aromas that waft from the glass. Blackberry preserve, brown sugar, raisin, black cherry, leather, tobacco and soft, sweet spice. An absolute explosion of flavors onto the palate, with blackberry compote, black cherry reduction, molasses, dark chocolate, coffee bean, grilled raisin, leather and soft spice.
While Merlot is usually considered the most food-friendly of red wines, we believe that Cabernet Franc is the most flexible. Enjoy this wine with a vast array of foods, particularly something challenging like a spicy 3 alarm chili, a ratatouille or Mexican cuisine. Another great choice would be the finest cuts of Wagyu, Kobe or a tender filet!
