Tasting Notes

Cabernet Franc from Italy? Why, yes! The Blason Cabernet Franc comes from pebbly limestone which is rich in iron oxides. This helps to create the intriguing and elegant fragrance of freshly cut grass, bell pepper, ripe raspberry, green pepper spice and liquorice. This wine is delightful and delicious.

    Cabernet Franc is an interesting grape, one that reflects the its local terroir perhaps more than any other red variety. In Friuli, especially Isonzo, where Blason is from, it takes on a different character again. Friulian law doesn’t allow for grapes that aren’t registered in the Region to be listed as ingredients. Even stranger, there are two Cabernet Franc varieties in the area….one is actually Carmenere. Don’t ask, it really doesn’t make sense to a non-Italian, or even me. So Blason’s Cabernet Franc is actually a blend of Cabernet Franc and Carmenere, and it is really sensational. The nose is full of spice, cola, earth accented with bits of chocolate, and there’s a tiny bit of weedy aromatics that add dimension. This is a wine to be drunk at cellar temperature, it adds to the freshness and focuses the flavors, and while only 12.5% alcohol it has real texture and depth. I love drinking this wine with charcuterie or grilled sausage. Try it, you’ll really enjoy it!

    It’s back! And as long as I can keep my coworkers at bay, you may be able to buy some for yourself. There is nothing simple about this Cab Franc, it has the classic blueberry, herbaceous plum, and a hint of cola; also a little white pepper on the finish. A staff and consumer favorite for many years now, this is a wine you will want to stock up on.
