Smith Wooten Cabernet Franc
Aromas of mint and sweet roasted peppers with a touch of spice. memories of dried roses and dark cherries with tingles of spices on the palate. Classic leather notes on the finish.
Gallagher's Vineyard consists of just one acre of grapes, located on Napa Valley's Silverado Trail within the Oak Knoll District. The vineyard is being managed by our Assistant Winemaker, Daniel Benton, who has become intimately familiar with each vine.
The grapes were crushed and bin fermented which accentuated the fruit flavors and added complexity. To avoid extraction of harsh tannins, no pumps were used until after the wine was pressed off the skins.
Serve with hearty fare including roast pork, beef and duck. Pairs well with Camembert, Smoked Cheddar, Chevre, Beaufort and Havarti cheeses, rustic breads, herbed flatbreads, fresh Blackberries and dark, dried Cherries. Assorted slivers of dark Chocolate, of course!
