Tasting Notes

Intense and impenetrable red colour. On the nose a potpourri releases notes of black berry, pepper and sweet spices. In the mouth enveloping, full-bodied, warm and velvety. Long persistence.

Pairing

This Cabernet Franc pairs wonderfully with blue cheeses. Also excellent with duck, roast pork, and meats with great succulence.
