Download Tasting Notes
Bright and balanced, spicy notes with hints of clove and pepper co-exist with black fruits to form complex aromatics. Currants, black and red, subtle oak and cedar fill the mouth and are complimented with spices and a full body. It has a long finish. Ideal with lamb, beef, game and full flavored foods.
The fruit was punched cap fermented and barrel aged for 38 months in selected French Oak barrels then blended prior to bottling.
While this is my ninth Reserve Cabernet Franc with fruit from the great Carpenter Vineyard, it is the very first for pureCru Winery. This is for those that have followed my Francs going back to the mid 1980’s.
