2. King Family Vineyards
A light, easy drinking wine, this Cabernet Franc bursts with fresh strawberries, cherries, and a hint of white pepper.
3. Bluestone Vineyard
Cabernet Franc is one of Virginia’s most popular red wines. Light in character and easy to drink, it is fruit forward and soft on the finish. Cherry on the front, oak and pepper tastes are very light without being overpowering.
4. Corcoran Vineyards
From their Benevino Vineyard location. Light spice and soft tannins makes this a perfect BBQ companion on a warm fall night.
5. Chateau Morrisette Winery
This wine features an aromatic nose of sweet fruit, particularly strawberry and raspberry. Red currant and soft cranberry flavors predominate on the palate, enhanced by a bright acidity and complemented by a clean, smooth finish.
6. Bluemont Vineyard
A classic Virginia Cabernet Franc with discernible tannins. 95% Cabernet Franc with 5% Petit Verdot.
7. Villa Appalaccia
This is an elegant blend of two distinct clones of Caberent Franc. A judicious blending of these produces an extraordinary wine combining both dark red berry fruit as well as a smooth tannic backbone that is a consequence of growing in shalee soils rather than red clay. Matured in fine French oak, the resulting wine is better appreciated as a European red than an East Coast Cabernet Franc. Definitely a great wine to store.
8. Creek’s Edge Winery
They are especially proud of this vintage and there’s no need to be in a rush to finish every bottle – save some for a special occasion.
9. North Gate Vineyard
Spice and bright red cherry fruit up front, followed by cassis, allspice, and a smooth black pepper finish that is characteristic of this varietal in Virginia. Hints of chocolate and coffee complement the smoky oak from American and French barrels. Look for these flavors to continue to intensify with age. Enjoy this with a slow simmered beef stew or any tomato-based dishes, such as Italian cuisine.
10. Rockbridge Vineyard
