This was the winner of our “beta Cabernet Franc competition in 2018. This week we re-visited it to find only marked improvement! From the Uco Valley in Argentina, this varietal is explosive. Still with ruby red and deep purple hues on the eyes and a medium-heavy viscosity. On the nose red raspberries combine with aged oak and soft sweet pipe tobacco. In the mouth, the red and black cherry fruit jumps to the forefront with oak, along with typical herbal notes and makes a complex and “almost chewy’ Cabernet Franc. This won in 2018 in the “Objective Classical Category” with a 2015 Crocker & Starr winning the “Subjective People’s Choice Category”. Who will win this year?
