Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Cabernet Franc from Lang and Reed opens with a red raspberry and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, fruit forward and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty red raspberry and boysenberry blend with nicely integrated stony minerality. I also detected hints of red plum, old oak and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins and fruit flavors linger and last for quite a while. The 2013 is impressive and a step up from the very good 2012. I would pair it with Theresa's homemade meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 North Coast Cabernet Franc offers expressive aromas of raspberry and cherry kirsch, with highlights of dried herb and wet stone. The same high toned fruit of raspberry and dark cherry carries through on the palate with a mouthwatering level of acidity and a soft, easy to enjoy finish. The tannin levels are not intrusive and allow for rewarding pairings with an array of culinary flavors. Best when served with family and friends!
