Cabernet Franc

Lamé-Delisle-Boucard

Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2015

Beautiful ruby dress with depth and brilliance. On the nose and in the mouth, cabernet franc is immediately recognized: typical notes of fruits (red and black, strawberry to black cherry), floral herbaceous plants (ronces, rose, violet), and mineral (slate, graphite)... endowed with a beautiful concentration and acidity still lively, it is a cuvée today perfectly in the balance between youth and maturity with some evolved notes (truffle among others) that brings a beautiful taste relief. A bottle with enough body to attack the big meat. Nice q/p ratio.

Belle robe rubis avec de la profondeur et éclat. Au nez et en bouche, le cabernet franc se fait tout de suite reconnaître: notes typiques de fruits (rouges et noirs, de la fraise à la cerise noire), végétales herbacées florales (ronces, rose, violette), et minérales (ardoise, graphite)… doté d’une belle concentration et d’une acidité encore vive, c’est une cuvée aujourd’hui parfaitement à l’équilibre entre jeunesse et maturité avec quelques notes évoluées (truffe entre autre) qui apporte un beau relief gustatif. Une bouteille avec suffisamment de corps pour attaquer la grosse viande. Beau rapport q/p.

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2003

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide red/brick rim.

Pretty nose of currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, herbs, light vegetables, pencil lead, light vinaigrette, olives, peppercorn, leather, tobacco leaf, earth and dark coffee.

Full bodied and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with cooked black plums, ripen cherries, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, earth, light vanilla and black pepper.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Tuscany. Smooth with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This 19 year old is Interesting and tasty. Not from the best vintage, but still very yummy, and at its peak right now.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours of airtime.

Thank you Judy for sharing this with me.

IRA Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2019

Cab is difficult to get right. The Argentine are making strides with this verity and this is no exception. It’s full bodied with ripe red fruit, rich and smooth with a spicy finish and little to none of that vegetal note. Good pqr, interesting label, rare single varietal, an oddity of sorts. Yup! The perfect wine to enjoy at at my local wine bar. — 6 days ago

F.R.F Tinaquaic Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2016

Deep ruby/purple color. Aromas of tomato leaf, blue and black berry, tobacco with a touch of green bell pepper. Pallet is rich and full of dark fruit, cocoa, wood, roasted poblano pepper and a touch of vanilla. A bit of tobacco, minerals and earth on the very long finish. Extremely complex and multi dimensional wine. Thank you so much, Kasey! — 7 days ago

Clos Rougeard

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

Moins top que la dernière bouteille, du poivron rouge et des notes végétales nobles mais la magie Rougeard n’est pas tout à fait au RV. Manque un peu de profondeur cette bouteille.

Lacks the usual depth despite the red peppers and “noble” vegetal aromas, bottle mot as good as the last one i had of this 2012.

Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Franc 2017

Beautiful cab franc from Walla Walla grapes. Distinct and different than any Chinon or other Loire Valley that I can remember. Solid fruit and not over extracted. Nice lengthy finish with sturdy acidity. Not soft. Recommended! — 12 days ago
