100% Cabernet Franc. The grapes are hand-harvested, brought to the winery by a horse, destemmed and gently pressed. Only natural yeasts are used and the juice undergoes an extended maceration. Aged in old oak barrels.

As Cab Franc ripens, it sheds the green pepper notes, which are undetectable here. There's the trademark barnyard notes from Brettanomyces, enough there to add some subtle funk, but not enough to be too distracting. Aromatically complex, it has wild raspberry, fennel, leather, and dried red pepper flakes. The palate shows off a cherry glaze with tarragon and bee propolis. It has the riper profile of Cabernet Franc from Anjou but it's matched with delicious texture and some funky, rustic, feral notes. Finessed enough to chill down and drink on its own, it has the depth and structure to pair with lamb or bo ssam. Zero sulfur added. [Jonathan Kemp]
