Wine Review: This Cabernet Franc from Colorado is ink red with a pleasant bouquet of earthy, musty black cherries with cedar, black pepper and hints of vanilla. This laid back Cab Franc has good balance and structure with ripe black cherries, minerality, leather, cola and nice tannins on the palate. The finish is smooth with a slightly tart cranberry finish. This BookCliff Cab Franc would go great with a burger topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions. Enjoy - Joe
Winemaker Notes: Our Cabernet Franc 2012 is ready to be tasted! This varietal is one of the major grapes grown worldwide, and grows especially well in Colorado. It has been known to be a great competitor in wine judging events and as a Reserve label in Colorado wineries. Our 2012 exhibits nice raspberry, cherry and mocha notes on the nose. It also has some nice acidity on the palate to complement the dark fruit and smooth tannins. Barrel aged for 18 months in French Oak, this wine's many layers is sure to please your senses! Cheers!
