Veritas Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2008

Member Review by islandbonsai:

This wine shows intense color for Cab Franc and the palate shows sweet berry fruit, plum, mint and spicy oak flavors. Quite a rich Cabernet Franc displaying the traditional perfume I associate with the variety but without the green, vegetal characters often found in lesser examples. 2008 seemed like a very ripe vintage. Beautiful and age worthy.

"Veritas Winery, a family business owned by Andrew and Patricia Hodson,opened for business in June 2002; with the help of their daughter Emily, they have succeeded in consistently producing a range of complex and elegant wines. The idyllic setting is easy to find but hard to leave, located just off I-64 at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The unique wines of Veritas are all of high quality, derived from vitis vinifera with the exception of one French hybrid. Our philosophy is to make wine with the classic, old-style principles of Viticulture and Vinification, at the same time using state of the art technology to capture varietal and regional character."

Combined with 10% Petit Verdot the style of our Cabernet Franc lies somewhere between the contrasting styles of the Loire Valley and Bordeaux in France. The Cabernet Franc vines now in their fifth leaf, produce wines of elegance and finesse. Aromas of black cherry, red fruit and mocha are followed on the palate by fresh fruits, coffee and herbs. The finish lingers with soft tannins and a sprinkle of pepper. - the winery
