I liked it because if it’s #typicity. On the nose it totally reminded me of #cabfranc then on the palate, clear and precise red fruits, a conundrum really, tasting blind high acidity high tannin and high alcohol. But medium depth of color, red fruit not black. I thought #italianwines but not totally and at that onto a spicy cinnamon and clove oak sensation. #toscanorosso — 2 years ago
December Cabernet Franc drinking continues with another bottle destined for a now forgotten blind tasting. Cor Cellars is a small bouquet winery that sources most grapes from the Columbia Valley. This Cab Franc, one of my favorite red varietals, was sourced from Horse Heaven Hills - a border AVA between southeastern Washington and Oregon. Alder Ridge Vineyard is owned by Precept Wines who is the biggest supplier of Horse Heaven Hills AVA grapes. Planted within shouting distance of the Columbia River, the grapes benefit from the deep marine influence the Columbia Gorge provides the region allowing favorable hang times for many grape varietals. Drank this one on its own - though would benefit with spicy or fatty foods due to high acid. ~$20 | #corcellars #cabfranc #horseheavenhills
On the eyes: Med concentration, bright strawberry-magenta, med tears, no gas/floc.
On the nose: Cedar, tobacco, black raspberry, strawberry, violet, chalk, med alcohol.
On the tongue: High acid, med+ tannin, med alcohol. Rhubarb, strawberry, tart cherry, hints of tarragon and a bit of earthiness; new oak(?). A bit out of balance for me - not sure cellaring will fix its issues. Best drunk now. — 2 years ago
Another gorgeous, deeply colored #rosé, this time from @barry_family_cellars and @the_cork_report wine club. All tart cherries and fun, this bright dry wine made by really nice people is perfect for today. Pair with a good book, SPF 50, and any darn food you want.
