Wine Review: This opaque and dark red colored Cabernet Franc from Northern California is very good. It opens with a fragrant red plum and mild red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a pleasant gentle plum with nicely integrated minerality and mild oak. I also detected a hint of strawberry licorice. The finish is dry and its moderate well managed tannins are showing good length. I would pair this impressive Cab Franc with veal scallopini. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 North Coast Cabernet Franc has a bright, clear violet blue color. The aromas display deep wild berry, stone fruit and dried herb aroma. The palate provides a more intense counter to the bright aromas with very deep penetrating fruit flavors wrap in soft silky tannins. Its vibrancy makes for hearty presentation in this state of youth, with structure and intensity that will suit a couple years of bottle age. Brilliant when shared and enjoyed with family and friends!
