D.H. Lescombes Limited Release Cabernet Franc


Cabernet Franc is considered the “Father” of Cabernet Sauvignon, so it is no wonder that it is so full of character, structure and complexity. A dark, robust garnet-red shines through this inky wine, with a heavy viscosity that alludes to a rich, thick mouthfeel. Its nose is complex and dynamic, but well balanced with aromas of blackberry, toasted vanilla, leather, and subtle spice. The hearty yet polished flavor profile boasts pleasant, chewy tannins, velvety cassis, and plum intertwined with notes of spice and earth.
