INTERLUDE :: CABERNET FRANC
Interlude echoes the drama of the vineyard tucked in a valley ensconced in the mountains of Big Sur. This is a vineyard of profound dimension and storied soils. The 1.5 acre Interlude limestone vineyard, with the world's longest growing season, produces fruit flavors of wondrous complexity and individuality.
With Interlude there is no distracting herbaceousness that characterizes, if not dooms, so many Cabernet Francs.
Interlude opens with a full, clean orchestral burst of black currants, ripe cherry, cedar, and wild violets then turns fascinatingly complex yet elegant in the long, pensive finish.
This is the interlude between sensual desire and sublime rapture. But always the mystery, always the unexpected... that inexplicable moment never forgotten.
With a glass of Interlude and Mahler's 5th Symphony you can discover the meaning of life.
