2008 Cabernet Franc
Once considered a blending grape used to bring structure & spice to a wine, recently Cabernet Franc has come into its own as a single varietal here in Washington state. Our 2008 Cabernet Franc is a special, limited production wine made mostly with our Anvil Club members in mind.
The color is inky, like marionberry jam. The many aromas include rich hints of cigar box, hyacinth, eucalyptus, and ripe currants leading into breathtaking aromas of black peppercorn, dark cherry and pomegranate. Experience the luxurious flavors of figs, dark blackberries, intense cinnamon and ginger spice. The finish is velvety, long and lush, balanced with gorgeous acidity and well-integrated tannins.
The 2008 Cabernet Franc is exclusive to our Woodinville Location.
Consider pairing our 2008 Cabernet Franc with either a juicy marinated flank steak with grilled vegetables or grilled rosemary chicken sausages.
