Wine Of The Week – Southbrook Triomphe Cabernet Franc 2008
Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!
CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND BIODYNAMIC
Medium ruby in the glass with aromas of earth, mixed berries, spice cupboard and a slight tobacco note. The palate is dry, balanced and interesting with a bright acidity, velvety tannins and lots of red and black fruit. The medium-long finish adds a lovely spicy accent. Age this for 1-2 years or enjoy it tonight with gourmet burgers, sausages, or pheasant.
