2016 Highway 12 Reserve Cabernet Franc
This full-bodied, intense yet elegant Cab Franc reminds us again of the power of this varietal. It displays a rich maroon hue and nose of tobacco and cassis, while delivering the punch with plum, blackberry, a touch of tanned leather and a hint of coffee. Violet and roasted poblano pepper notes dance around the midpalate. Sometimes referred to as the feminine side of Cabernet Sauvignon, our 2016 Cab Franc exudes serious strength through powerful black fruit and subtle oak nuances. Soft tannins provide a stable backbone. Pairs beautifully with eggplant parmesan--finish with plenty of fresh herbs like basil and parsley!
