Terra Pacem, Cabernet Franc 2018, Columbia Valley, Oregon
Tasting Note: An Oregon cabernet franc that dips its toes in Loire midpalate expressiveness.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of crushed-dried violet blossom, black plum, pencil shavings, black raspberry, black olive and macerated red cherry.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc has medium-intensity, red-and-black fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin.
The wine is plush on the palate and completes with a black-fruit-infused, medium-plus finish.
You may have never looked for Oregon cabernet franc before, but this elusive bottle will have you looking for more.
Bottle Note: Terra Pacem is a vineyard and winery like no other in the country. We’re a living, learning, working, social agricultural community by and for people with disabilities and welcoming of everyone.
