Bright and balanced, spicy notes with hints of clove and pepper with
black fruits to form complex aromatics.


Currants, black and red, subtle
oak and cedar fill the mouth and are complimented with spices and a
full body. It has great depth and a long finish. Ideal with lamb, beef,
game and full flavored foods.

Growing Conditions

While this is my tenth Reserve Cabernet Franc with fruit from the
great Carpenter Vineyard, it is the second for pureCru Winery. This is
for those that have followed my Francs going back to the mid 1980’s.


The fruit was punched cap fermented.


Barrel aged for 40 months in
selected French Oak barrels then blended prior to bottling.
