EdenVale Pear House Reserve Collection Cabernet Franc Wine Details

Description: We selected Sundown Vineyard for its true varietal character, highlighting its aromas of violet and roses. Sundown also accentuates dark fruits such as crushed boysenberries, black plums and dried currents, as well as baking spices and white pepper.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Franc:
Cabernet Franc is an accessible, spicy, herbal, dark blue grape variety that is often compared to Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannin than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Sometimes the French refer to Cabernets, which could mean either of the two grapes. Its typical aromas include an herbaceous and pronounced peppery nose, even in ripe fruit, and something eerily like tobacco. The Cabernet Franc ripens at an earlier stage, which gives it reason to exist in the Bordeaux area. In the Loire, where we find it a lot, it gives a clear red fresh and fruity wine.
