`This is a 100% Cabernet Franc froma Co-Op in Saumur. An inexpensive red, it is an excellent value. Inky purple in color. The nose is light but has cherries, plums, green bell pepper and a bit of a steely note. Medium bodied. On the palate, there is more present. Plums and cherries with a bit of a green streak. Light tannins. With air the red fruits come out more. Moderate finish. This probably won't get better but should drink well for five to seven years. It is better with a bit of food. Stews or Chili would work well. For $13, its hard to expect more from a red.
