90% Cabernet Franc. Crisp with a hint of citrus. Chalky finish lingers nicely.

Aromas of macerated strawberries and yellow apple skin mingle with sage, birch, and sandalwood. The wine’s creamy texture delivers a snap of bitterness mid-palate that keeps it from too-sweetness. A warm, peachy-onionskin color and strands of tiny bubbles add glitter. If you think that Fall’s the time to stop drinking rosé, think again. 100% cabernet franc | 12.5% abv
