Cabernet Franc…it can be so good or so very bad. Luckily, Broc Cellars did an awesome job producing a beautiful version that I had a chance to sip a couple of weeks ago. It’s pretty hard to find, so, if you can get your hands on a bottle, I would definitely take advantage of the opportunity!
100% Cabernet Franc from Santa Barbara County. Whole cluster pressed and naturally produced. 11.9% alcohol. Retails for around $30.
Beautiful aromatics of red fruit, black pepper, herbs, and earth. The elegant palate offers layers of bright fruit…cranberries, raspberries, and red cherries are abundant. There are also notes of pepper and spice woven throughout. Vibrant, fresh, and pure. Not your typical California Cabernet Franc (thank goodness)!
