Orzada Cabernet Franc

When the norwegian shipowner Dan Odfjell founded our winery, he embarked upon adventure filled with challenge and promise. Orzada is a nautical term for sailing up against the wind before setting a direction. Our Orzada wines reflect our staking a course in pursuit of a beautiful and memorable wine.

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

Intensive red burgundy in color, the nose is powerful with expressions of anis, black pepper, tobacco and cigars. Interesting mint notes refresh the nose. Aromas of coffee and leather add complexity. The palate brings a perfect balance; with ripe tannins combined with a pleasant acidity and a long finish.
