A pleasant mix of coffee grinds, char and spiced black cherries perfume this Cabernet Franc. Full bodied and rich with ripe black plum fruit and soft mocha and cinnamon notes, it's faintly reminiscent of a mug of Mexican hot chocolate. Soft tannins and a vibrant acidity contribute to a tart, sour cherry finish.
