Light body, big taste! Delicious with Sweetish stinky cheese and dark chocolate

This wine got recommended to me after asking for a "soft" taste and that isn't really the case in my opinion. I do like the taste of it though.

Good value cabernet franc, green bell pepper and jalapeño notes to complement strawberry and pomegranate. Nice acidity, drinkable alone or with food

2010. Light body, mild tannins, flavors pair so well with three different bloomy rind local goat cheeses!

Great, unique cab team for the price point. Excellent funk, dampy greens, leather and hint of tobacco. Really enjoy this with or without food. Perfect weeknight wine when you're feeling like something off the beaten path.

You WILL like me when I get mad! This is a green machine with green blood running through its veins. It's all veggies on this one. The nose is covered with jalapeño, banana pepper, bell pepper, celery, tomatillo, scallion, a hint of pomegranate, charred cherry, damp basement, and wet cement. But, it comes down to its medium body with a very focused and bright acidity. It's balance is right on point and showcases some nice solid tannins. At $15.00 it's hard to pass up. Always nice for something different. Cheers to Friday night!
