Rappahannock Cellars
Cabernet Franc
$ 24

Winemaker Jason Burrus has created a stellar rendition of a Virginia Cabernet Franc, as testified by his Best of Category and Double Gold win at the San Francisco International Wine Competition—one of the most prestigious events in the nation. The wine opens with aromas of raspberry, spice and a veil of smoke and blossoms on the palate with a medley of black currant and mocha. The seamless integration of wine and oak showcases its 15 months of aging in French and American barrels.  Pair with Beef Wellington or grilled lamb.  Drink now through 2012.
