DH Lescombes Cabernet Franc Limited Release

 
$36.00
Qty:
 
 
 
Cabernet Franc is considered the “Father” of Cabernet Sauvignon, so it is no wonder that it is so full of character, structure and complexity. A dark, robust garnet-red shines through this inky wine, with a heavy viscosity that alludes to a rich, thick mouthfeel. Its nose is complex and dynamic, but well balanced with aromas of blackberry, toasted vanilla, leather, and subtle spice. The hearty yet polished flavor profile boasts pleasant, chewy tannins, velvety cassis, and plum intertwined with notes of spice and earth.
 
Pair with tomato sauces, fresh raspberries, asiago cheese, hearty stews and meat dishes.

We tasted this last night in Dripping Springs, Texas and I have to say, it was incredible! Smooth finish, a great nose and body and a terrific all around wine. We are planning a trip to New Mexico in July and will be sure to be by for more.
