Wine Review: This dark ruby Cabernet Franc from Spring Mountain opens with a pomegranate and plum like bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is mild mineral infused black currant with hints of plum and blackberry. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins show very nice length. This Cab Franc would pair well with Stuart’s steak treats. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Estate Cabernet Franc has an absolutely beautiful nose. Boysenberry, mint, and floral components all come out of the glass. On the palate the wine is lush and rich with black cherry and allspice. The fruit is well-balanced with slight hints of toasty oak and ends with a lingering toasty finish.
