2015 CABERNET FRANC
Salman Family Vineyard, Clarksburg
San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Silver Medal Winner
The 2015 Cabernet Franc has a garnet ruby color of medium depth with bright hues. Aromas of peppers, juniper, cedar, pencil shavings, and dark cherry provide the signature scents of Cabernet Franc. Aging for nine months in small oak barrels contributes a mild note of toasted oak to the wine’s bouquet. On the palate juicy succulent flavors of black cherry and smoked peppers come on a soft and elegantly textured wine that flows seamlessly to a smooth lingering finish.
Try this with bruschetta, wild mushrooms, spicy tomato bisque or vegetarian lasagna.
