2017 Highway 12 Reserve Cabernet Franc
This full-bodied, intense yet soft Cab Franc reminds us again of the elegance of this varietal. It displays a rich burgundy hue and nose of tobacco and cassis, while delivering the fruit 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 grandfather of Cabernet Sauvignon, our 2017 Cab Franc exudes serious character and soft tannins providing a stable backbone. Pairs beautifully with braised pork shanks over creamy polenta...finish with plenty of fresh herbs. Very limited quantities!
