John’s February Pick of the Month

Cabernet Franc

Doug Fabbioli experienced a catastrophic loss of grapes in the spring of 2010 to frost.

Fortunately, his 2009 vintage produced abundant and solid wines which will see him through until his 2011 harvest is in the bottle.  His ‘09 Cabernet Franc is a medium weight red with delicate aromas of cinnamon and cherry and displaying soft cherry & berry notes on the palate.  The finish is smooth, clean and framed by a veil of smoke, showcasing the skills of this talented winemaker.

Pair this refreshing red with a hearty lamb stew and oven fresh Ciabatta bread.  Drink now through 2014.
