Eolithe Saumur Cabernet Franc

9.1

Plums, coffee, fresh herbs, green pepper and for some reason I get Italian capicola. Maybe it’s because I have been craving it lately. None the less some type of cured meat. — 13 days ago

Château du Hureau

Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2016

If you love an earthy almost dirt like element to your wine look no further. I like to thinking it as drinking dirt in a good way. Fruit plays its part way in the background. Enjoyed it quite a bit. — 13 days ago

Domaine Michaud

Aerternam Touraine Malbec Cabernet Franc

Cuvée Aerternam | 50% Cot 50% Cabernet Franc | I gave it 6 hours in Decanter and still a stubborn wine with lots of character. A nose with blackberries, vanilla and flint minerals. From silex underground, barrel aged. Good acidity, very vivid, tannins that are very clear. But also velvety expression. Incomparable price/pleasure balance. Paired with stir-fried steak with paksoi and dark rice. — 17 days ago
