2016 Wild Boar Cabernet Franc
A parent to both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Cabernet Franc is one of the world's most extraorindary (yet underappreciated) varietals, and it brilliantly captures the 'essence of place' from which it is produced. In Virginia, this varietal has found an amazing environment to thrive along with an enthusiastic winegrowing community and devoted fan base. This wine is a celebration of the varietal's prestigious roots and importance to our state's community. This is a full-bodied and structured expression and drinks much more akin to a Cabernet Sauvignon, as opposed to the more medium-bodied versions found in France's Loire Valley. While drinking great now, this wine should drink beautifully through 2025+.
90% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot.
