Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.

Wine number four in a flight of four Cabernet francs. Bordeaux is all over this (as it should be) with the more delicate and savory herbal notes next to some leather and pepper spice. This is probably beginning it’s prime drinking window (where I’m sure it will remain for a good while). Showed a lot of complexity. Most guessed left bank cab blend. Not very tannic, solid acidity. Old plum, black cherry core and dusty graham cracker highlight the aromatics. There is a mix of red and black licorice on the palate next to bay leaf and cocoa dusted dates which works really well.

Does the label remind you of a Napa Wine?

Mark and I agreed to meet up at Classic this afternoon for some quick wine drinking, but it eventually turned in to a small wine gathering! Wine is great, but sharing it with others is so enjoyable.

For those who care, this was a Parker 100, and I am happy to report that I can at least see the reason behind it. 80% cab franc, 20% Merlot...LOVE those percentages! Not even close to peaking, but so freaking good now. No green pepper here. Blackberry, creme de cassis, no harsh tannins, very well integrated. I don't foresee this going 20+yrs, but my goodness it is silky smooth now!
