TRUCHARD CABERNET FRANC


Our Cabernet Franc is planted on several southwestern facing hillsides on our estate.  The Cabernet Franc grape is lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon, making it a perfect wine to blend with more robust grapes, giving finesse and a peppery perfume aroma. The final blend on this wine is 95% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. A rich bouquet of wild berries, black cherry and cassis with touches of cedar, tobacco and sweet vanilla. There are bright flavors on the tongue of red currents, cherry jam and ripe plum. Full, round tannins provide a pleasant finish of dried red fruit and subtle spice.

The cold clay soils of Carneros come through in the cool, meaty flavors of this cabernet franc. The fruit tastes bosky, like cranberries, the tannins contrasting with a coffee-like funk. An intriguing red to dress up a steak
