I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Tonight I have opened a beautiful 2011 Catherine & Pierre Breton Beaumont Chinon Cabernet Franc.
On the nose there is nice fruit strawberry, cherry, raspberry, green bell pepper, roasted red pepper, herbs and wet gravel.
On the palate the red fruit continues with strawberry, cherry, raspberry, green bell pepper, tomato, herbaceous and crushed gravel.
This wine is medium to full bodied that has a smooth fresh mouthfeel, medium to medium + acidity and med to medium + fine mouthcoating tannins that leaves you with a medium+ to long red fruit graphite finish. I am loving this Cab. Franc and is making this weekend more enjoyable. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a day ago

Woah dude. I was lost in the desert dying of thirst when I came upon an old tire underneath some rocks and I drank what was inside and it gave me life — 17 days ago
Cedar and leather nose. Ruby with slight bricking at the edges. After an hour in the decanter, really began to show well. Savory, underbrush/bell pepper notes (balanced and not overwhelming), dried red fruit, hint of tobacco. Medium to lighter bodied, bright and fresh, and drinking younger than would be expected. — 7 days ago
Tremendous floral notes on the nose. Medium body, good tannins, more than a hint of vegetal pepper flavor. Paired with sausage and peppers. — 16 days ago
