Buttonwood Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2002 Wine Review (NW)


Tasting notes:

Big aromas of spicy plum and currants on the nose

Full bodied and rich on the palate

Sweet, smoky berries with spicy plum sauce and cola on the finish

Summary:

Here's an interesting Cabernet Franc from California. It's a full-bodied style that's richly spiced and fruity. This is completely different from the Cabernet Franc produced in the Loire Valley and Bordeaux regions in France. For $18 or so, check it out. It should pair well with rich food similar to what you might expect with a Zinfandel or Petite Sirah. Raise a glass!
