"The 2017 Cabernet Franc Ascona Vineyard is one of the most distinctive wines in Leo Steen's range. Powerful and explosive, it packs a real punch in its dark fruit, sage, tobacco, espresso and licorice flavors. The 2017 is a dark, imposing wine, and yet it also has quite a bit of varietal character. " (VM)

Winery Notes:
Tasting Notes:
This expressive wine displays a gorgeous nose of black Cherry and bitter sweet chocolate, as well as layers of menthol, lavender, and graphite. On the palate, ages worthy tannins underscore a savory mix of dark fruit, dried flowers and Kirsch.

Vision:
This wine takes its inspiration from the wonderful Cabernet Francs of the Loire region. After looking for an ideal vineyard site for many years, I found what I was looking for at the family-owned Ascona Vineyard-an ideal mountaintop site for growing a savory and sophisticated expression of Cabernet Franc.
