The grapes are brought immediately after harvest into the winery for a gentle crushing and destemming. The must is fermented in stainless steel tanks starting off cool (60º F) and working up to an aggressive fermentation (88º F). The wine underwent both pump-overs and punch-downs as much as five to eight times a day. The wine also underwent full malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels giving the wine a very complex character. We purposely use a greater percentage of two to three year old barrels with this wine so that the nice vegetal (green pepper) characteristics can shine through. The wine was aged in oak barrels for 13 months.

The Psagot Cabernet Franc exudes a beautiful fruit profile which integrates nicely with the spiciness of the oak barrels. From the nose and into the mouth it has Cabernet Franc written all over it. The wine additionally has an earthy-mineral backbone highlighting the terroir of the vineyards and the region. 

Psagot Cabernet Franc pairs nicely with game meats, stews, pizza and lasagna dishes or can be enjoyed on its own.
