Sunset Hills Cabernet Franc
Sunset Hills
United States - Virginia

The wine is produced from the Shenandoah Vineyard site, which is typically cooler than the other sites offering bright acidity and red fruit characteristics.

Ripe red cherry, black plum, and hazelnut bring this medium bodied wine to the table. Elegant tannins and subtle toasty notes round out the finish.
