2008 Hunt Country Vineyards Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc, a varietal that continuously shines in the North East, really shows true in this wine by Hunt Wines. It shows beautifully in the glass with it's vibrant ruby color!

The aromas are bursting with raspberries, cherries, earth, and dried figs. The flavor profile is layered with fresh herbs and pepper. Faint black cherry and oak accompany these flavors wonderfully! This cab franc is medium in body, smooth, and dry, with soft tannins.

For $17 this Cabernet Franc is worth every penny. It is complex, bursting with flavor, and would pair excellent with cheeses and meals. Cheers!
