Varietal: Â Cabernet Franc
Region: Â Virginia, USA
Cost: Â $18.95
A blend of Cabernet Franc (80%), Petite Verdot (10%) and Merlot (10%), this wine has been aged in French oak to add Â toast and chocolate finish to the wine. Â Aromas of spice and berry combine well with the typical Cabernet Franc flavors, including a bit of a peppery finish. Â Soft tannins make it excellent for drinking now, or it can be aged for a few years. Â Will compliment lighter meats very well.
Recommendation: Â Very good representation of the Virginia Cabernet Franc. Â You won’t be disappointed by this wine and it’s a great wine to introduce yourself to Virginia’s signature grape.
