Wolffer 2003 Cabernet Franc

Winemaker Tasting Notes:
Dark red brick in color. Abundant aromas of violets and lavender mixed with vanilla and fine toasted oak. This food-friendly wine has a classic Bordeaux-style mouth-feel that is lush yet spicy, bringing out the best of the Cabernet Franc grape. The wine has a wonderful balance between elegant and vibrant fruit, ripe tannins and mark characters. The long finish is complex and very classic. While ready to drink, this wine will continue to develop with long-term aging.

Food Pairing:
A great wine for the table. Serve a little below room temperature. This wine is an excellent match for any read meat preparation; it also pairs well with veal or chicken with wine sauce, duck, mushroom dishes, and full-flavored cheeses.

Technical Notes:
91 % Cabernet Franc and 9 % Merlot. Handpicked on October 31 at full ripeness, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and carefully hand sorted. The fermentation took 18 days with a peak temperature of 82 during which the cap was pumped over 3 times a day every 8hours. The total maceration was 26 days. The wine matured in French barrels (45% new oak) for 19 months; malolactic fermentation was 100 % completed in the first month. There were five rackings and the wine was bottled unfiltered and unfined on July 15, 2005. Total production: 545 cases of 750ml and 165 cases of 375ml bottles.
