' Bloody Point Vineyard - Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc
 

Cab Franc is a major black grape frequently used in blends, but it can also be enjoyed as a single varietal.  Normally a lighter red than Cabernet Sauvignon our Cabernet Franc is a deep rich red color.  It has aromas of cassis, raspberries, violets, and bell pepper.  Our intense sunlight diminishes the chance of vegetive flavors.  We needed a grape that could ripen and thrive in our harsh winters and cool springs, and Cab Franc fulfills that requirement very well.  Our volcanic soils and intense sunlight give this wine a rich, complex profile.

It pairs well with grilled steaks and chops, as well as dishes with mushrooms and green olive profiles.
