Ox-Eye, Cabernet Franc, Shenandoah Valley, Virginia 2019
100% Cabernet Franc
CRANBERRY & PLUM, SMOKY EARTH & VANILLA
Cabernet Franc is Virginia’s most planted red variety, and the versatile grape does excellent work in the state that is for lovers. The vignerons of Ox-Eye take pride in the structure and freshness of their wines, having wisely established their vineyards in a corner of the Shenandoah Valley where the shift between day and night temperatures is dramatic. Medium-bodied, bright, and rounded out with creamy vanilla notes from time in barrel, this is an East Coast showstopper.
Serving Suggestion: Grassfed salisbury steak w/ chanterelle-shallot relish & field peas w/ bacon. Purple sweet potato enchiladas w/ black beans, poblano mole, & goat feta.
