    Dear Bordeaux may I ask you why do you blend Cab franc when it is oh so delightful and refreshingly different on it's own? Yes, well it is difficult to grow this variety and not the easiest to to bring it to a level of ripeness that is just right but then when it is ... Wow! This fantastic Cab Frank has beautiful aroma of violets and plum. Medium yet well structured body with a hint of green tea and sage. Moderate tannin and just enough acidity to make this wine taste bright and fresh and Just for 12.99. There you go! Cab Franc done right.

    A classic Cabernet Franc at an affordable price, this wine was an instant favorite for the staff. Pepper, herbs and underbrush merge seemlessly with dark berries, mouthwatering acidity and firm tannins. The finish is remarkably light but long. I can see this pairing perfectly with grilled poultry, pepper-crusted meat, or just an evening spent under a blanket escaping the winter weather.

    This is a great little Loire Cab Franc that gives you everything you love about the varietal— stewed peppers, red currants and violets on the nose, good richness of fruit and solid tannin structure on the palate —for a great price. Don’t be fooled by the direct import pricing though, this is a serious wine!
