Early Mountain Cabernet Franc
Virginia 2018 (750 ml)
Early Mountain's approach to Cabernet Franc is more Burgundy than Bordeaux, as they look for silky rather than tannic structure and favor the aromatic potential of the grape over the flavor of the barrel. This wine is rich and concentrated, with an herbal character that's buffered by dark, ripe fruits. The tannins are quite ripe and less rustic than previous vintages, making for a soft but persistent finish.
