Dovetail Cab Franc 2020

After the ale spent two years in neutral oak, it was refermented with Cabernet Franc grapes for five months before bottling. The result is aromas of cinnamon, stewed apples and cherries, with a hint of must. Low carbonation is a benefit to the dusty peach colored ale that still feels effervescent. The grapes feel like they've had a dusting of sugar, which helps tamp down some tannic bitterness on the finish. John Holl
