Typically blended with 20% Merlot to promote palate saturation, this remarkable wine is virtually opaque in its deep ruby hue. Aromas and flavors of boysenberry, red current and fresh sage gush from its rich and explosive mid-palate, followed by ripe blueberry, espresso and deep chocolate flavors in the finish. Being both thoroughly ripe and light on its feet, our Cabernet Franc has gained many converts over the years.

Pride Mountain has always done well with Bordeaux varietals and the 2008 Cabernet Franc is another beauty. The most elegant red in this portfolio, it offers up aromas of blue fruits intermixed with raspberries, tobacco leaf and violets. Medium-bodied and stylish with sweet tannin and a long finish, it comes from the Sonoma side of the vineyards. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. ”
