Wine of the Week - STO 2008 Cab Franc


Another winner from Sort This Out Cellars.

The first thing you'll notice as you pour is the deep purple color.  Always a good sign for me.

Aromas of overripe strawberries and blackberries on the nose.

The light mouthfeel contrasts amusingly with the bold flavor.  This wine is spicy up top, followed by dark tastes of tobacco and leather.  No wonder its modeled on the Rat Pack.  A fully fleshed out mid-palate, which I find a lot of wines lacking.  And a tasty, active finish that leaves you looking forward to your next sip.

14.2% alcohol
