The 2017 Zuccardi Q Cabernet Franc displays a ruby red color with fresh fruit aromas of cherry, cassis, and violet notes, followed by a lush mouthfeel, balanced acidity, firm tannins, and a long finish with just a touch of bell pepper lingering. It can be consumed now but will age beautifully for several years.
The Zuccardi "Q" line represent wines of the highest quality made from the oldest vines, up to 40 years of age, grown at the foot of the Andes Mountains in the high altitude province of Valle de Uco of Mendoza. The rich climate and geography of our high elevation Valle de Uco vineyards provide excellent fruit ripening and concentration.

"This is a beautiful cabernet franc with fresh flowers, rose stems and dark fruit. Medium body, lovely fruit and bright acidity. New and wonderful. Drink now." -JS, Mar/2019
