Beaucanon Estate Releases Their 2005 Cabernet Franc -- Bigger and Bolder, the New Cabernet Franc Shows Where Cabernet Sauvignon Defined the Term "Brawn"

June 9, 2011 - Napa Valley, CA

Beaucanon Estate releases their 2005 Cabernet Franc. This youthful wine is a mixture of blackberries and fruit, a generous dash of oak, and subtle aromas of smoke, tea and violets. The 2005 Cabernet Franc is an example of the growing maturity of Beaucanon's plantings -- complex and bold on the palate, with prominent acid tannins that ensure a long cellar life of 10+ years. Abundant red and black fruit flavors, vanilla, and cinnamon spice promise an incredible reward for your patience.

With a little breathing in a decanter, the Cabernet Franc will release delicate notes of red cherry, lavender and mineral earth, adding depth and interest. On the palate, the fruit takes over, with a rush of red and black berries dominating with savory oak. Darker elements of earth and cocoa flavors whisper around the edge. The Cabernet Franc will add zest to a variety of dishes, including poultry lasagna, Middle Eastern and Greek food.
