    Winemaker's Notes:

    This seductive, full bodied wine was produced from premium grapes that were hand selected from Ironstone's top vineyards in the Sierra Foothills of Calaveras County. After undergoing extended fermentation and maceration, the wine was aged in French and American oak for 24 months with additional bottle aging prior to release. The Reserve series' unique aging process of using small oak casks stored in underground caverns ensures a fuller, richer, finer wine of true varietal character.

    The Ironstone 2004 Reserve Cabernet Franc is an elegant, rich yet soft wine. With fleshy black cherry, blackberry and spicy oak aromas this seductive Cabernet Franc is worth drinking now or cellaring for a special occasion. Succulent, dark fruit flavors of plum, black cherry with a hint of sweet oak fills the palate and gives way to a smooth, medium finish.

    The rich fruit in Ironstone Reserve Cabernet Franc pairs well with pan-seared pork or game with a variety of fruit sauces. Pan-seared duck with pomegranate glaze is an excellent meal to accompany this lush, dark, fruit-forward wine.
