33 Vines 2007 Cabernet Franc - $24.00

Here's a wine I tried during the wine writers trip to Prince Edward County ... turns out the County isn't just about Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The Tasting Notes: The nose is cherry, blackberry with a touch of vanilla-oak and some floral-smokiness. The palate was also quite good, offering up cherry-tobacco, black fruit toasty-smoky oak, hints of mineral with good acid and tannin grit on the finish. Price: $24.00 – Rating: ***½

Cabernet Franc, along with Sauvignon Blanc is a parent of the more famous Cabernet Sauvignon. Quite similar in many ways to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc tends to have higher acid and lighter tannins than it's offspring with fruit in the redder end of the spectrum and a distinctive and aggressive herbal note that can dominate the wine's aromas.It tastes even better with some great Cuban Cigars.
