Our 2020 Cabernet Franc is one of my favorite reds of the 2020 vintage. It has all the niceties of a good Virginia Cabernet Franc coupled with the memories of a challenging vintage and collective year for everyone involved. This is a beautifully structured classic vintage Cabernet Franc.
Rich tropical fruits, intense peach, apricot, mango, with a light floral character. The light residual sugar from our Ice Wine helps to add more ripe fruit character and palate weight with bright acidity.
The 2020 Claret is a blend that is modeled after the great wines from St-Emilion in Bordeaux, France. The result; a new world wine with old world charm. The blend uses three of the five classic Bordeaux varietals; Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot.
