Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark garnet colored Cabernet Franc from Patrimony opens with a fragrant blueberry and blackberry bouquet with hints of oak, graphite, and bay leaf. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, ultra smooth, concentrated and savory. The flavor profile is cedar and stewed red plum blend with notes of stony minerality and red licorice. We also detected some hints of candied violets and blackberry. The finish is dry and its polished dusty tannins build-up and stick around for quite some time. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab Franc with an aged ribeye or braised short ribs. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 Cabernet Franc opens with supple black and blue fruits, followed by notes of fresh sage, tobacco leaf, and mineral undertones of graphite and granite. Its full-bodied palate is vivacious, with delicate tannins and fresh-balanced acidity. Its long-layered finish is rich in notes of tart cherry, plum, pomegranate and raspberry.
