Wine Review: This medium ruby colored Cabernet Franc from Anarchy is Excellent! It opens with a fragrant red currant and red raspberry bouquet with hints of cola and violets. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, very smooth and seamless. The flavor profile is spiced red plum, lingonberry and gravely minerality blend with notes of red currant, roasted red pepper, oak, and black pepper. The finish is dry, and its well-managed dusty tannins stick around for quite some time. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab Franc with a black pepper encrusted venison and or with a prime rib end cut. Lastly you can sit around the firepit with friend, sipping this wine and wonder why Christian didn’t make Bordelaise wines back in the day…. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The flavors of Cabernet Franc are similar to Cabernet Sauvignon but tend to be more feminine, especially with its perfumed bouquet. She is powerful but has a more graceful and elegant tannin structure that caresses and seduces your palate. The velvet mouthfeel is laced with flavors of raspberries, black currant, mocha, spice, tobacco, and a hint of green peppercorn. (Note: the pepper used in real Steak Au Poivre) When it doesn’t get ripe all the way this can show itself as the nasty green bell pepper and is why she needs to be grown and made on an artisan level with impeccable attention to detail. When grown in the right locations in a year that achieves full ripeness, the Furious Muse will cast her spell upon you with a palate of lush fruit, spice, tobacco, and rich mocha flavors layered in a lingering seduction of tannins that tease like being spanked by a velvet glove.
