This is 100% old school Cabernet Franc from the Loire valley in France. Coming in at 12.5% ABV, this is a classic Loire Red wine. Deep garnet in color, mostly opaque and mostly bright. The nose has black cherries, tobacco, some bell pepper, slight "twigs and sticks". Medium bodied. Nice acidity. On the palate, this drinks easy but needs some food. Some black cherry fruit with plenty of forest floor and tobacco. A bit of green bell pepper. Moderate finish. This would work well with lamb stew. Drink over the next five to seven years.
