First Time Purchase - select this option if you do not have a Carr wine growler to return

Our new wine on tap release is a 100% Cabernet Franc from Rossi Vineyard in the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara County.  The grapes are hand picked, then placed whole cluster in a French oak barrel that is completely sealed to create a carbon dioxide rich environment. With the lack of oxygen, the whole clusters begin to ferment turning the sugars into alcohol. We then press the wine and it returns to an oak barrel for another 2 months prior to kegging. This type of fermentation gives the Cabernet Franc a lighter color, with fresh fruity aromatics, and low tannins. It's perfect for the growlers since it is ready to drink now and easy to sip.

This Cabernet Franc has a plum color with violet and maroon highlights. This intriguing wine has aromas of sage, fresh herbs, and blueberry followed by baked cherry, boysenberry, and raspberry on the palate. Nicely balanced with a light, fresh and dry finish.
