CABERNET FRANC

"Vivid orange-pink. Intense, mineral-tinged raspberry, cherry and floral scents, along with a spicy white pepper accent and a touch of herbacity. Intense red berry, blood orange and bitter cherry flavors display very good depth but come off lithe. Closes chewy and very long, showing strong tension and resonating mineral and floral qualities."

Winery Notes:
Chinon Rosé:
• Made by direct press
• Long, slow fermentations at cooler temperatures in stainless steel
• The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation – a choice made to keep the freshness of the grapes
