Winemaker Notes
The Winery at Bull Run's Cabernet Franc grapes were harvested in October of 2016, de-stemmed, crushed, and macerated for four weeks under temperature controlled conditions, then transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for four weeks for primary fermentation. After fermentation was completed, the wine was transferred into American Oak barrels and aged for nine months.
Food Pairing Notes
This Cabernet Franc’s light-body makes it a great match for herbed goat cheese with grilled antipasto, bbq chicken, parmesan risotto with braised short ribs.

Enjoyed this one - a good drinking wine that would likely benefit from a few years storage. Definitely aerate if drinking now. Good minerality and spicy tones to the taste. Overall an item I'll likely rebuy.
