Here is a beautiful wine to celebrate Cabernet Franc Day.
Dark ruby in color with a cloudy reddish rim.
Fruity nose of dried figs, blackberries, cooked cherries, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, cola, pencil lead, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco and light alcohol.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, blackberries, cooked cherries, dried figs, tobacco, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, herbs and coke.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a great Cabernet Franc from Lodi, California. Fruit forward, extracted and tasty, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime, when the tannins show up.
Delicious, but might be too sweet for some. I'd like to revisit it in a year or two.
Good by itself as a sipping wine or with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.
15.5% alcohol by volume.

First Chianti style spent money on. Pretty good definite tomato and acid. This one has tannins as I’ve come to expect from macchia.

This is the best use of our most inventive presidents face since the $100 bill. — 5 days ago
Fairly dense red, moderately extracted pigment. Black cherry, black currant, mint and butter aromas. Fairly ripe flavors of cherry, blackberry, black currant in mouth, rounded mouthfeel, slightly tart blackberry and cranberry on finish with seed bitterness and mild skin astringency. Lactic aftertaste. After an hour, white pepper and then, 90 minutes later, cocoa emerges in the finish and aftertaste. After two hours, barrel smoke emerges. Great fruit, nothing too fancy on the winemaking end (perhaps deceptively so) but exactly what I’d want from a Lodi Italian varietal like Barbera, especially if you can decant an hour or two and wait for that white pepper and cocoa to emerge. — 8 days ago
Super yummy and easy drinking wine. Medium to full bodied and would go well with pizza or greaser foods. — 17 hours ago
This was a jammy and accessible Zinfandel. It had a nice boysenberry and grape flavor with hints of spice. For the price this was excellent. — 11 days ago
Little tart, good with provolone and salami, not so good with pizza. Aroma at the end was pleasant but not the best — 7 days ago
Would drink again.
Fruity, light body, pleasantly long finish. — 3 days ago
