It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Franc.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish /brick rim. Wonderful color.

Nice nose of blueberries, black currants, vanilla, cedar, bell pepper, spices, tobacco, coffee, chocolates, vegetables, herbs and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, spices, vegetables, bell pepper, licorice, dark chocolates, black coffee, light celery and peppercorn.

Long tangy finish with soft tannins and raspberries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Franc from San Diego County. What a great surprise. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel with nice balance.

Tasty and enjoyable by itself as a sipping wine.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and remove the acidity.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

Aged in French oak barrels for 27 months. A small production of only 72 cases.

Tasty and delicious.

13.4% alcohol by volume. Yay. Nice to see that from California.

92 points.

$44.
