Habit Wine Company
What we love
Founded ten years ago by Jeff Fischer, Habit Wine Company produces small-lot wines, sourcing grapes from vineyards with strong commitments to sustainable, organic and biodynamic farming practices. The 2015 Red is a juicy Cabernet Franc dominant blend, rounded out with Cab Sauv, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. Big yet balanced, oozing with fruit-forward flavors, soft tannins, and well-integrated oak.
About this Wine
Layers of rich red fruit and savory aromatics open up in this effortless, radiant red. The Cabernet Franc was fully destemmed to bring out the grape’s primary red berry character and the wine spent nearly three and half years in barrel.
It’s drinking fantastically out of the gate but will age beautifully. This wine is a joy to taste and offers remarkable level of quality and personality for the money. Only 320 cases made!
