Email Reminder:
 
 
 
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 pipe tobacco, jammy black
currant, plum and subtle violet. The hearty yet polished flavor profile
boasts pleasant, chewy tannins, pepper and herbs like rosemary.
 
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.
