6/2009 (oops) CABERNET FRANC CARMENERE 2006
More, please. We want more Cabernet Franc available in America, and we want more of this brand of wine. (oops) wines are produced and bottled for Schwartz Olcott Imports of Manhasset, New York.
The packaging is superb, and this wine was just what we were looking for one night. A guest had visited and insisted on cooking lamb chops, so we wanted a robust red, but not a fruit bomb. This 84% Cab Franc and 16% Carmenere fit the bill. It showed black pepper, a bit of raspberry, and a touch of menthol or Eucalyptus. Not bad for $12! (Rating ****)
