C.G. Di Arie 2008 Cabernet Franc

We blended this Cabernet Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot for complexity and structure and aged it in French oak barrels for 15 months. The sweet aromas dominated by plum and violets, carry to the palate revealing more exotic flavors reminiscent of black currant and cassis accented with cedar and cocoa. The sustained finish adds hints of mocha and tobacco. This is a well structured full body wine with a perfect balance. While the wine is enjoyable right now it can be stacked away for a generation.
