Today I wanted to share one of my favorite wines: 2012 THE FRANC produced by Cosentino Winery. This is a really lovely wine that will give you serious bang for your buck, as it comes in at only $10-$15 per bottle.
The FRANC is a Napa blend of Cabernet Franc (76%) , Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Merlot (4%). I love this wine for its velvety mouth feel, jammy flavor and smooth finish. It's very dark in color and tastes of dark fruits and spice, with a hint of vanilla in the nose.
It's great by itself and pairs well with roasted meats, barbeque and strong cheeses. If you haven't tried a Cabernet Franc style wine before, I would highly recommend it!
À Votre santé!
