2013 Unrestricted Passito Cabernet Franc


Tasting Notes:

Using the old world Italian style of " Appassimento", this Michigan Cabernet Franc was further ripened off the vine on massive fan beds. This week of drying time concentrated flavors and allowed the berries to reach complete ripeness and sugar content before maceration. Reaching full maturity, these grapes have bold tannins and an effervescent nose. Spending twenty-six months in mostly neutral barrels allowed this wine to reach new heights of complexity before entering the bottle.
