Bravante 2013 Cabernet Franc 750 ML
We take Cabernet Franc very seriously at Bravante Vineyards. There are 3 blocks that each give us several different characteristics that help us build our Cabernet Franc and the other wines we grow. Our varietal Cabernet Franc comes from the 2 blocks on our Stone Ridge Vineyard blended with a little Stone Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker's Notes: The 2013 Cabernet Franc has dominate bright blueberry fruit with accenting aromas of cedar and sage. This Cabernet Franc is full bodied with firm structured tannins. The flavors follow the aromas, blueberries, cedar, sage and hints of oak. The blueberry fruit carries into the long firm finish.
Ripe blueberry and cassis aromas in a fresh, fruit-focused style, leading to a palate with a bright thread of acidity that traces an elegant, linear path to the plum-flavored finish. A blend of 89 per cent cabernet franc and 11 per cent cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold. 92 Points, James Suckling - November 19, 2018
