Sonoma County

88% Cabernet Franc
5% Merlot
5% Malbec
2% Petit Verdot

A perennial favorite of our Liquid Assets Club, this new release of our Sonoma County Cabernet Franc is almost exclusively estate grown. The 2008 vintage is 88% Cabernet Franc and has been blended with Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, building lush and soft textures welcome to this typically firm Bordeaux family varietal.

Your senses are greeted by sweet tobacco leaf; plum, dried black cherry and pomegranate. Sweet toasted oak gives way to baking spices such as nutmeg, allspice and clove. The wine is rich and mouth-filling with ripe soft tannins. Complexity is the theme driven by the four varietal blend and supported by twenty-one months in French oak barrels.

Bring out the best in this Cabernet Franc by pairing it with a petit filet mignon, sautéed chanterelle mushrooms and roasted fingerling potatoes.
