King of the Heavies (Cabernet Franc)
Tasting Notes: Dry red, medium-bodied with blackcurrant notes
Biographical Notes: Born from premium California grapes but raised here in Ohio, it is a perfectly-balanced wine from start to finish that's well earned its kingly name.
Pairing Notes: Grilled steaks and chops, dishes with portobello mushrooms, green olives, pepper, rosemary, or mint.
Name Notes: They tilled the land, mined, built earth-movers in factories. Rooted to the ground. That was their presumed inheritance. But their dust-covered hands would clutch the throttles and triggers of the bombers sent to the Pacific. They flew the longest missions and were crowned above the jungles of Southeast Asia. They came to rule the skies, but they remained grounded all the while. They returned to the land, the Land of the Free, but, together, they always will be – the King of the Heavies.
Label Notes: He wouldn't dream of flying without his best friend (look closely at the bottom window of the bomber).
Ho-Hum Notes: 750 mL; 13% ABV; contains sulfites.
