This small batch Cabernet Franc leaps from the glass with notes of caramel, dark cherry, blackberry, brown sugar, milk chocolate, and sweet spice flavor.

Aged 22 months in French oak, followed by secondary aging in a Four Roses bourbon barrel resulted in a whole new level of depth, flavor and smoky intensity that is framed by soft, chewy tannins from our Cabernet Franc grapes. A hint of toasted coconut and bourbon linger on the finish. The mash bill recipe for this barrel, FR OBSK, employed a higher rye content and a yeast that produces a slightly spicy, full bodied rich taste.
