2008 Cabernet Franc

Philip Carter Winery

Cabernet Franc has established itself as Virginia’s best red wine grape, expressing the character of the fruit consistently from vintage to vintage.  The Philip Carter ‘08 offering is a medium weight red displaying cherry and raspberry notes with a touch of pepper on the finish, all classic markers of Virginian grown fruit.  Serve with Italian meatballs and spaghetti on an upcoming chilly fall evening.  Drink now through 2013.

The Philip Carter Winery of Virginia is located at 4366 Stillhouse Road in Hume.  The picturesque winery sits on expansive, rolling country side outside the village of Hume surround by vineyards.  The tasting room is opened daily, April through November, from 11am to 6pm and from December through March Thursday through Monday, 11am to 6pm.  (540) 364-1203.
