There are times when you are searching in your wine cabinet for a special something. It was just a Friday evening but I wanted something unusual. Found it! Cab Franc! I pulled out the 2012 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley. Gotta love that…
Cab Franc is usually thought of as a blending wine for bordeaux blends, but I think it’s just fantastic on its own.
This wine showcased plum and cherry, a hint of violet and good tannins with slight herbal notes.
