Moonrise Wine Details
Price: $17.00 per bottle

Description: Reminiscent of a Provencal Rose, this delightful semi-dry wine has less than 1% residual sugar. Full of fresh picked strawberry aromas with hints of cranberry entice aromatically. The palate unfolds with pomegranate and light red cherry mixed with cranberry. A dry style rose to be enjoyed with foods with its sweet tart palate and racy acid. A nice fun wine anytime!

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Franc:
Cabernet Franc is an accessible, spicy, herbal, dark blue grape variety that is often compared to Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannin than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Sometimes the French refer to Cabernets, which could mean either of the two grapes. Its typical aromas include an herbaceous and pronounced peppery nose, even in ripe fruit, and something eerily like tobacco. The Cabernet Franc ripens at an earlier stage, which gives it reason to exist in the Bordeaux area. In the Loire, where we find it a lot, it gives a clear red fresh and fruity wine.
