In the glass, this Cab Franc from Lake County has a HUGE black core with flowery purple edges and a hot pink halo….
The nose is EXPLOSIVE with black fruit and ALL KINDS of wood ————–> There’s a sandalwood note up front that mingles nicely with some cedar and oak…. Another sniff brings out a burst of blue fruit with a bell pepper kick….
A sip has a blackberry start that stumbles into notes of red licorice and cola ——–> The mid-palate is a fist full black cherries and more of the bell pepper that I got on the nose before the wine finishes looooooooong with an anise and black licorice ending….
Here’s another one from Steele Wines…. Much like all of Jed Steele’s offerings, this thing’s damn good and will only set you back about $15 bucks ———-> 🎧🎧🎧 Kick back and listen to this wine with something woodsy like Bon Iver – Skinny Love
