Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc

Dennis Horton was the first in Virginia to use Tannat in his Cabernet Franc. He found that most Cabernets in Virginia needed color and tannic structure. So he added a small amount of Tannat. Our Cabernet Franc is a bit of spicy oak for you glass. Smooth, dark plum flavors melt into a black pepper finish.
