Description: The 2005 Rose' is made exclusively from Cabernet Franc grapes grown on our Estate Vineyards, Biscuit Ridge and Three Rivers. The aroma opens with pink grapefruit and cranberries and finishes crisp and light. Enjoy this refreshing wine on hot summer days, on a picnic, or by the pool. Serve chilled.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Franc:
Cabernet Franc is an accessible, spicy, herbal, dark blue grape variety that is often compared to Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannin than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Sometimes the French refer to Cabernets, which could mean either of the two grapes. Its typical aromas include an herbaceous and pronounced peppery nose, even in ripe fruit, and something eerily like tobacco. The Cabernet Franc ripens at an earlier stage, which gives it reason to exist in the Bordeaux area. In the Loire, where we find it a lot, it gives a clear red fresh and fruity wine.
