Light ruby in color, with slight bricking, this Cabernet Franc has aromas of red cherry and currant, dusted by notes of violets and iron. While light bodied in feel, what's there is concentrated and persistent, offering a palate of vibrant red berries lined with cedar oil and savory game. Delicate black-tea tannins offer just enough support and make this an approachable wine to enjoy now.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
