2017 Cabernet Franc, Heringer Vineyard, Clarksburg
New Release! I really like Cabernet Franc. Like, really, really. There is something so visceral about a wine that can transport me from wherever I am, to a memory of being in a baseball park and the smell of ball park nachos piled high with jalapeños. It is the nostalgic feeling of being 10-years-old with my Mom, Dad and sister at an A’s game, and cheering for Jose Canseco and Ricky Henderson. Every time I smell Cabernet Franc I am transported. This uber savory wine smells like nachos piled high with jalapeños, cheese pizza with black olives and green bell peppers with notes of cranberry, blueberry and sage.
