To start, I must confess to having an incredibly soft spot for both Cabernet Franc and The Loire Valley, combine the two and I start salivating!
This 100% Cab. Franc from the Touraine AOC in the "Garden of France" is SENSATIONAL!
Clear, bright dark ruby color, almost opaque in the center and fleshy legs in the glass.
Eloquent aromas of ripe black cherries, raspberries and black plums, sun kissed green bell peppers, hint of smoky wood fire wrapped in Mexican vanilla in the nose.
Dry, vibrant, wonderful symmetry between acidity and tannins, fruit found in the nose has evolved, matured and now unites with a lovely smokiness in the mouth.
Drink now but keep a few bottles to enjoy over the next 5 years!
This is the kind of wine that I enjoy creating a meal (more like a course!) around...
I have enjoyed this wine with pan fried pork chops with a toasted orzo risotto, port-balsamic mushroom chicken with wild rice, braised beef with autumnal veggies...
In my native French tongue, whenever astounded, we utter "WATATOW"...
This is how I feel about this wine!
