Blueberry Franc

ESF
9.2

Picked up this gem on vacation a few years ago on Lake Michigan: gorgeous Cab Franc they made into Port, aged 10 yrs then blended w/blueberry wine. It’s fascinating ... this stuff is deep and mellow w/Tawny aromas of baked cherry spice cake with raisins and walnuts then the blueberry compote comes in. Not cloying or syrupy - just flat out delicious. I always try these types of wines @ tasting rooms to find treasures like this. — a month ago

Nutty, with some unripe white peach/green apple. Touch of malo balanced by healthy acidity. Burgundy-adjacent. — a month ago

Oakville East

Exposure Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

A ripe Cabernet, offering a blast of fruit in the flashiest way. Wows with tiers of blackberries, black cherries, cassis, cocoa, cool mint, spice and smoked meat that are almost sweet, but the finish is dry. The powerful oak overlay is perfectly in keeping with the wine's volume. — 20 days ago

Marland

Cabernet Franc 2018

Bright and sour, would be perfect for a picnic with some pasta Primavera and perhaps some shrimp. Love getting to try regional wine specialties! Purchased from the friendly and knowledgeable folks at House of Pure Vin. — a month ago

Ridge Vineyards

East Bench Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2018

Nice spicy black fruits on the nose. Fully flavored with ripe fruits, baking spices, and a little zippiness. Surprisingly restrained for a zinfandel, but good. — 11 days ago

East Side Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Burning through my 12’s & 13’s of this wine. It’s probably as good as it will get. — 7 days ago

Hirsch Vineyards

East Ridge Pinot Noir 2017

Bright and young. Showing a touch of funk and underripe red fruits. Smells like it grew up mostly below the fog line, clinging to the coastal cliff. — a month ago

Outpost East Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

A little tight or needed more time to open. Big peppery finish that keeps going, not a lot of fruit, maybe some tobacco or mild eucalyptus or cocoa going on. Better second day. — a month ago
