Product description

Following a long standing old world tradition of fermenting different grape varieties together, two distinct clones of ripe cab franc and a small percentage of malbec (aka Cot), were hand harvested on the same day, destemmed and soaked for two days at 52 degrees F, then set to fermenting. This co-ferment achieves a harmonious integration of the characteristics of each variety. After malo-lactic conversion in barrel the wine aged for nine months in seasoned French oak, then bottled at its bright and juicy height. Tasting Notes The Cot-Fermented bursts with fresh raspberry and blackberry aromas. On the palate there is a bright mouthful of vibrant ripe fruit that finishes with delicate savor. Enjoy this juicy wine with everything from grilled fish to roast chicken to BBQ. 88% cabernet franc, 12% malbec
