Philip Jamison Jones Winery, Cabernet Franc 2016, Connecticut
Tasting Note: A tart, red-fruit-forward cabernet franc with nice balance and vibrancy along the midpalate.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, raspberry, red cherry, strawberry and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc has tart, medium-intensity red fruit suggested on the nose along with hints of clove baking spice.
The wine is medium in acidity and tannin.
A good, straightforward cabernet franc with some Christmas-spice elements in the background.
Bottle Note: Vintner’s selection wines are produced by selecting only the choicest grapes from our vineyards. Our vineyard selection of cabernet franc is barrel-aged for twelve months, creating a wonderful medium-bodied red wine.
