2021 Cabernet Franc, Rivino Vineyard
A varietal most often used to enhance other red varietals with a touch of spice, herbal lift, or rich depth of fruit, Cabernet Franc is rarely produced as a single varietal. Meadowcroft’s Cabernet Franc is sourced from a family-owned vineyard nestled on the edge of the Russian River in Mendocino, California. Our Rivino Vineyard Cabernet Franc features aromas of dark cherry layered with toasty oak, rose petal and savory/herbal notes. The palate is precise, layered flavors of plum, blackberry and cherry finishing with a subtle herbal notes.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRING
