Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple colored Cabernet Franc from Mt. Brave opens with a vanilla and blackberry bouquet with hints of nutmeg and violets. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, balanced, smooth and rich. The favor profile is a tasty black currant and blueberry blend with notes of black raspberry, oak and black tea. We also picked up some hints of black pepper and pomegranate mixed in. It was very complex. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins stick around for a very long time. The Panels suggested pairing this Cab Franc with several dishes. Roy’s rib roast, braised short ribs and roast duck were suggested. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of blue fruit and rose petal captivate while notes of herbs de Provence and wet stone grace the palate for a supple and structured finish. The 2017 truly reflects Mt. Veeder's rugged sense of place.
