2018 Barboursville Cabernet Franc Reserve
It is no surprise this wine presents with a continual progression of pleasing textures and flavors, seeing as the rootstock it is made from.
This especially food-friendly wine is so varietally characterful and intriguing that its outstanding response to the terroir has sustained its ranking among the most honored and loyally followed wines the vineyard produces. Barboursville Vineyards is a masterful delight of well-rounded heritage, steeped in Italian family history, European varietals and practiced agriculture, and it all began during the birth of a nation, right here in Virginia.
Barboursville grows vines originating from the Loire Valley, Pomerol and St. Émilion, as the foundation of a wine famed for elegance and complexity as well as considerable age-worthiness. Drink now through the next 5-8 years.
In the Monticello AVA (American Viticultural Area), after the namesake of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello Estate and within the Piedmont Region of the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a rootstock of grapes developing in spectacular harmony with the terroir of the land. We've said it once, but it's significant enough to repeat.
The Zonin Family's winemaking history and dedication inspire wines of consistent depth, fruit complexity and enjoyment, such as in this Cab Franc Reserve, versatile enough for both the everyday and an elegant feast.
