Pearmund Cellars Cabernet Franc
Pearmund Cellars
United States - Virginia

100% Cabernet Franc. Known primarily as a blending grape in Bordeaux's left bank. Its ability to grow and mature in Virginia makes it one of the States finest varietals.

On the nose, this wine has aromas of ripe cherries, black raspberries and bell pepper which translates to the palate with notes of cocoa, dried cherries and a touch of sweet wood tannins. A hint of pepper will linger on the long finish.
