Sol Rouge Vineyard and Winery 2013 Cabernet Franc, Red Hills, Lake County, CA
An alluring deep ruby in color, Sol Rouge’s Cabernet Franc shows off a depth of rich aromatics – dark red and black cherry, cranberry, plum and black currant intermingling with notes of clove, damp earth, subtle smoked wood and hints of red licorice. On the palate, you’ll find structured tannins and an integrated, palate-cleansing acidity that smooth and soften as the wine continues to open, enhancing the lush, spicy dark fruit and cranberry notes throughout its lingering, simply enjoyable finish. A harmonious wine with the ability to age gracefully over the next 10+ years, the 2013 may be Sol Rouge’s most classic Bordeaux-style Cabernet Franc yet to date. Don’t miss this!
