This 100% Cabernet Franc, sourced from organically farmed vines, is about as serious and soulful as a wine gets. The vines were harvested and aged in neutral barrique for 18 months, with a touch of sulfur at bottling. Sure, you could drink it now – but we recommend hanging on to this one and watching it evolve and grow.
