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


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!
