Description

Proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset’s French bulldog, Frenchie, represents the very essence of style, charisma and personality. With his stout stature and ability to steal everyone’s heart, he is definitely royalty around the winery. At Frenchie Winery we give you the opportunity to take a piece of royalty home with you in the form of some delicious wines. Whether or not Frenchie descends directly from the monarchy is irrelevant. His regal airs lie in his pure breed attitude, his don’t–stand-in-my-way strut and his round eyes that shine like gems on a crown. His majestic dignity and kingly authority are irresistible, as much of his adoring public already knows.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

A deep red in color.

Aroma: 

Fragrant bouquet of cassis, plum and cherry cordiale greet the nose. 

Palate: 

Dark fruit flavors coat the structured palate with notes of earth, espresso and baked berry pie. This is a bold and full-bodied wine with fine-grained tannins and a savory finish.
