This Carbernet Franc was hand crafted at Bel Vino’s boutique winery from high quality California grapes and aged in oak barrels for 22 months. Cabernet Franc is similar to Cabernet Sauvignon, but often is more intense and flavorful. The wine has flavors and aromas of spices and dark fruits. Oak aging gives a softening and mellowing effect to the wine and brings in smoky notes and flavors of oak and vanilla. This is a great sipping wine that pairs well with red meat, marinara pasta and other hearty and spicy foods.
