Cosentino The Franc 2017
Composition: 100% Cabernet Franc
Bold maroon hues hint at this wine’s intensity. Scents of vanilla, cedar and dried herbs rise from the glass. The palate is layered with flavors of black cherry, currant and baking chocolate with hints of cracked black pepper leading to the supple finish.
The grapes for THE Franc were hand-harvested in Lodi, an AVA known to benefit from the cooling Delta influence. The 2018 harvest was notably even and steady, providing balanced yields of quality fruit, allowing us to craft a wine with both freshness and depth of fruit; perfect to enjoy now, no further cellaring required.
Pairs with just about anything off the BBQ – for an elegant touch, try with roast duck with juniper berry compote.
