Dark, rich and beautifully structured, this wine showcases the complexity and concentration of great mountain-grown Cabernet Franc. Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, roasted coffee and fresh herbs rise from the glass, followed by notes of cola, vanilla and clove. The generous fruit continues on the round, fleshy palate, where flavors of cassis, ripe cherry and dark chocolate are supported by a velvety texture and hints of creamy oak, smoke and toast from aging in French oak barrels.

Wine EnthusiastThick and rich in black sugarplum, this memorable Pritchard Hill-grown red is lovely and bold, velvety in texture with a softness to the firm, integrated tannin. Dried herb and spice provide memorable seasonings amidst a larger theater of dark chocolate, leather, clove and pepper.
