2021 Cabernet Franc - tu es belle
100% clone 214, this Cabernet Franc is medium to full bodied and is a wonderful expression of the Chalk Hill AVA expressing the unique characteristics of the region. On the nose are aromatics of leather, tobacco, black cherry, cocoa cassis with floral notes of rose petal. The palate defines Cabernet Franc exhibiting a richly textured and deep wine with smooth tannins. The wine exudes strawberry and red berry compote with notes of graphite and leather, finishing with hot cocoa chocolate and raspberry. This franc is fruit forward, delicious, and ready to go now with a little decanting and will age beautifully for a decade or more.
