Merlot Cabernet Franc (Reservation Deposit)
Introducing the harmonious medium-full bodied blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. These two renowned varietals blend seamlessly together creating a wine that is vibrant with a velvety richness. Enchanting notes of plum, sweet strawberries, and raspberry are followed by subtle hints of chocolate mocha, baking spice and licorice. The Merlot adds the fruity and berry component to the wine while the Cabernet Franc adds more perfumed herbal notes. A silky-smooth mouth feel, fresh acidity, balanced tannins, and a finish that is nothing short of radiant.
