Sorry, sold out
Our Notes: Currently sold out. The 2010 will be available at the end of May 2013. We are happy to take orders now.

After macerating for thirty days in an open topped oak vat without any additives, the Cabernet Franc was barreled down into Slovenian oak barrels where the wine slowly finished malolactic fermentation. Apart from topping barrels, nothing else was done. Phenomenal acid, a fine-grained texture, and a balance of fruity and savory flavors, this is varietally spot on Cabernet Franc with a subtle Slovenian twist. Traditionally paired with white polenta and foal, gamey meats, sweet herbs and earthy flavors also make this wine sing. Recommended decanting: 1 hour. Aging potential till 2020.
