Varietal:Â Â Cabernet Franc (75% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sav., 1% Petit Verdot)
Region:Â Â Virginia – USA
Cost:Â Â $24
Minerals, spice, jam, and toasty characters are the staples of this medium bodied wine with smooth textures. Â A versatile wine, will pair well with a range of food from green salads to grilled lamb.
Recommendation:Â Â This is a great medium bodied red that’s as good by itself as with food, something I find quite enjoyable in a bottle of red wine. Â The peppery finish that is the stable of most cabernet francs is there, but is very subtle, and the petit verdot that is blended in does an excellent job of making this a very smooth, almost silky wine to drink. Â One you’ll enjoy if you bring it home.
