Originating from the Basque country of France this medium-bodied red wine is loved for its savory, bell pepper-like flavors, medium-high acidity and well-crafted balance of tannins. Decanting Cabernet Franc will help simmer down its natural spiciness. The wine will taste softer and more rich within 60 minutes. You’ll smell bold aromas of sweet strawberries, raspberry, mint and roasted jalapeño. You’ll taste flavors of sour cherry, dried oregano and sweet pepper.
And you’ll love the flexibility to pair it with foods like black beluga lentils, roasted eggplant, roasted pork or spicy lamb gyros.
This wine is ideal in cooler weather settings when rich, hearty meals are appropriate to celebrate meaningful family events.
