It is a big boy! This particular bottle really showcases how big Cabernet Franc can be. With minimal fruit expression on the nose, one can feel the menthol masking the deep plum and currant. On the palate, blackberry is tasted from the front through the mid palate and finishes with incredible tannins that linger long after each taste. This wine is recommended with food. As much as I enjoy sipping on the biggest bottle of red I can find, this is not for for the faint at heart. I suggest opening the bottle and letting some oxygen smooth out the tannins. The dark flavors and tannic structure would pair perfectly with the pungency of blue cheese. My perfect pairing? Filet encrusted with black peppercorns, topped with blue cheese. Shockingly, this wine is priced between $10-$15. I highly recommend this bottle for someone who has used the phrase, "The bigger, the better."
