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.

Tasting Notes: A nose of cherries, raspberries and fennel. Peppery spice continues on the palate with notes of cocoa and sweet cedar wood, allowing for easy drinking. A hint of pepper will linger on the finish.
