Southbrook 2007 ‘Whimsy’ Cabernet Franc
This is a delicious Cabernet Franc from the great ’07 vintage taken from the 5 most interesting barrels of Cab Franc harvested and made at Southbrook … basically, this is barrel selection at its finest. The nose is raspberry puree and vanilla with a nice sweetness coming from that nice ripe fruit smell. The palate shows the complexity and finesse within this wine: raspberry, cherry notes with hints of tobacco, good acid balance and fine tannins, finishing off with exotic spice … very exciting and very tasty. This wine ain’t no whimsy, it’s a finely crafted, five-barrel beauty. Price: $34.95 – Rating: **** ½
