2003 CABERNET FRANC
2003 Cabernet Franc has aromas of crushed Bing cherries with hints of tobacco and cinnamon. This mouth filling wine has a voluptuous well rounded texture. The flavors of blackcurrant and dark chocolate compliment the distinctive creamed cherry core of Champoux Vineyard Cab Franc. The delicious lengthy finish is supported by powerful rich soft tannins.
