Aime Cabernet Franc --

It is hard to find a good Cabernet Franc that is not $40 or more, but we have done it....

2016 Domaine Aime Cabernet Franc....$12.99

Great price - was $14.99
This is one of the rare, pure Cabernet Francs from the vineyards around Minervois. 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: Rémi Bonnet produces a delightful Cabernet Franc. This wine avoids many of the pitfalls often associated with the grape, but remains a true expression of the varietal. It is a lush, silky wine, that has a great versatility that allows it to complement a wide variety of foods. In the nose blackberry, blueberry, and black cherry notes mix with just a hint of subtle white pepper spice. In the mouth the wine is simultaneously rich and soft, dominated by black fruit flavors. The satin textured finish is complimented by ripe round tannins. This wine is ideal for pork, turkey, hamburgers, or even pizza.
