2015 Cabernet Franc Estate Reserve
100% Cabernet Franc
The 2015 Keswick Vineyards Cabernet Franc Reserve is a lighter style of this noble varietal. The nose carries a tremendous amount of red fruits interwoven with eartheir tones such as truffle and leather. The palate opens up with bright red fruits, but balances nicely with the espresso imparted by the French Oak barrels. While a little young in its release, the finely grained tannins encourage aeration. Your patience with this wine will be rewarded.
The gold ribbon Estate Reserve label is an endorsement on our part of what we believe is the best expression of a varietal that we could possibly make. They are always naturally fermented and un-manipulated reflecting the character of the vineyard versus the winemaker. In terms of ageing, our reserves are designed to age and improve with time, generally requiring several years for them to reach their true potential.
