I was an over-achiever this week in my tasting. A friend of mine learned about my “resolution” and invited me over to try one of her favorite wines. All I have to say is “WOW” – this one is fantastic!!
This is a Cabernet Franc & Merlot blend. It is bold. It is spicy. It has a great foundation of dark fruits. Overall, I LOVED it! The website says it has ”a touch coarse and rustic from midpalate on, ending with gritty tannins”. I definitely agree. When I mentioned in my earlier posts that I like a red wine that kicks me in the back of the throat – this is what I’m talking about. My friend served this wine with sharp white cheddar and brie cheeses – delicious!!
Recommend: ABSOLUTELY if you like big, bold reds.
Price: $40 – 45 (and worth EVERY penny).
