This Cabernet Franc hails from Tyler, Texas’s very own Kiepersol Vineyards. The team of Texans from South Africa have proven to be very gracious hosts and even better growers. These guys (and girl) grow high quality fruit in one of the most challenging climates in the state. It’s been a while since we have released a Cab Franc varietal. It would be best to hold this wine a minimum of three years. However, it will truly show its best in 2020-2023. Enjoy through 2023.


The color of deep plum skins is followed by a nose suggesting soft eucalyptus, dill and tart berries. Preserved orange peel and blackberry compote lead the palate with secondary notes of green figs and wild herbs, softening at the finish to black currant and sage.
