Broken Earth ‘CV’ Paso Robles Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc
California San Luis Obispo County United States North America
Tasting Notes
Technical Details

It is quite firm on the palate but the masses of spicy fruit and balancing oak compliment the grip nicely. The color is deep and intense reflecting the wine’s brooding nature. Bright natural acidity will ensure this wine ages for many years.

Cabernet Franc grape blend.
This wine contains allergens, sulfites.
The Estate

The term CV refers to the original vineyard holdings on our estate, Continental Vineyards, and this very limited wine is only produced in exceptional vintage years. In 2018, we achieved perfect fruit ripeness, resulting in a wine of outstanding depth.

Wine Making

Cabernet Franc is a significant Bordeaux variety that figures prominently in the “right bank” styles of Pomerol and St Emilion although it is rarely released there on its own. Paso Robles’ climate has the ability to get it ripe on its own and we are confident, and excited, to release this 100% varietal.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with beef, pork, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
