2017 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. Sourced entirely from Virginia, this wine strikes a perfect balance and is strikingly similar to the quality bottlings you find along Bordeaux's right bank.
75% Cab Franc, 17% Cab Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 1% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
