This Big Bold Cab Franc is rich with flavors of blackberry and black cherry along with earthy bell pepper undertones and mouthwatering acidity. Pair with grilled duck, lamb, beef, roasted vegetables or enjoy it A La Carte. Cheers!
Because it lacks couth (duh). Made from a little of this and a little of that, with grapes from here and from there, aged in recouped oak barrels—nothing fancy and it packs a punch at 14 plus % alcohol. A little cab (ok a lot of cab), a modicum of zin and a pinch of Syrah. That’s it, unfiltered, unrefined and unapologetic. Don’t be a snob, try it!
Merlot, from the French Merle or blackbird, was presumably named for the dark blue, purple, almost black color of its berries. With flavors of cherry, blackberry and plumb along with its supple tannins, this merlot pairs well with everything from chicken to prime rib to pizza. After a temporary fall from popularity, merlot is back and back with a vengeance. Blackbird Fly!
