Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Franc from the "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" opens with a fragrant black currant and oak bouquet with hints of black cherry, dark chocolate and a touch of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, nicely balanced, very smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is granite dust and black currant blend with notes blackberry, dried herbs and dark chocolate. The was also a hint of pie crust (or oak) towards the end. The finish is dry and its well-managed moderate tannins build-up and linger for quite some time. The Panel would pair this delicious Cab Franc with ribeye steak or a charcuterie platter. Enjoy – KWGTP
