The 2016 Cabernet Franc has a youthful, deep ruby color with purple undertones. The aromas showcase a vibrant, yet deep wine with a beautiful array of crushed dried violets, black raspberry, cardamom, and sweet toasted oak.  This 20th anniversary vintage is a beautiful representation of the organic elegance found in every bottle of Crocker & Starr wines. 

“Pam Starr always does a terrific job with Cabernet Franc...” Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
