Gentle, whole cluster press. Indigenous yeast, stainless steel fermentation. Lees stirred for 3 months. Bottled prior to malolactic fermentation.
This wine was inspired by the Cabernet Franc Rosé of Chinon (Loire Valley). Subtle aromas of strawberry and mango. Dry, rich body, with flavors of pomegranate and a hint of blood orange. Beautiful, creamy, savory finish to pair superbly with a variety of dishes.
