2017 Jones Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc is the parent grape of Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Vintner Select Cabernet Franc is 100% Estate-grown fruit from Jones Family Farms vineyards (90% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot.) Great care is taken in making our Cab Franc as we hand-select the best grape clusters. This wine is barrel-aged in French, American, and Hungarian oak for 6-8 months. It has aromas of bell pepper and spices like a classic Cab Franc from the Loire region of France (Chinon) and flavors of red cherry and cranberry. It pairs well with anything off the grill.
- Steak, pork, turkey, chicken, and grilled meats
- Quinoa, black beans, lentils
- Vegetarian dishes (grilled Portobello mushrooms)
- Camembert and Cato Corner - aged Bloomsday, feta, Fontina, and blue cheese
If you like peppery flavors, this is your wine!
