Limited Release Cabernet Franc

This rare Charles Krug bottling offers a unique opportunity to experience the texture and aromatics that Cabernet Franc is known for. A medium bodied wine, it opens with floral notes accented by hints of dried blueberry and tobacco; on the palate the wine is a beautifully integrated mélange of white pepper, tobacco, berries and cream. While Cabernet Franc predominates, a touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon has been added to enhance the volume and aromatics of the finished wine.
