By on August 6, 2013

distefano-sognoOwner/winemaker Mark Newton has been making this Cabernet Franc since 1997, and it has become a favorite with him and his fans. This opens with aromas of dark purple fruit including blackberry and plum, as well as exotic spices, chocolate and a bit of oak. On the palate, it reveals hedonistic flavors of rich chocolate, blackberry and boysenberry, all backed with moderate tannins and plenty of length.
