It is hard to find a good Cabernet Franc that
is not $40 or more, but we have done it....
2011 Domaine Aime Cabernet Franc....$14.99
Technical Notes: 100% Cabernet Franc. After the grapes are harvested they are 100% destemmed, crushed, then fermented and aged in tank before bottling. The grapes are sustainably farmed, and vinified using indigenous yeasts. There is no oak aging for this wine.
Tasting Notes: This is a rich ripe Cabernet Franc, with none of the vegetal elements that one sometimes finds in cooler climate Cabernet Franc. The wine is deep dark purple color. In the mouth the wine is full of black fruit flavors, with hints of blueberry and plum. The finish is soft and supple with ripe tannins. This is an exceptionally easy wine to enjoy. It is silky enough to have on its own, but rich and complex enough to enjoy with a wide variety of dishes.
