Il Fauno di Arcanum Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2016

Il Fauno 2016 51% #merlot, 31% #cabernetfranc, 17% #cabernetsauvignon and 1% #petitverdot . Delicious, ageworthy #toscanaigt blend. Pretty tight after opening, a day later, black and blue berry notes unfurl alongside tobacco, toasted coconut, tilled earth, and vanilla notes on nose. Bright acidity on palate, rich texture and some chewy tannins on the finish that build and linger on the tongue. Overall I’m digging the balance and richness but a bit too much vanilla / toast notes from new oak. — 7 months ago

There are so many good value #cabernetfranc from #Loire and I feel fortunate because I prefer this style, light, juicy, crunchy and fresh almost tart style to some of the more expensive more complex styles. — a year ago

Delicious #cabfranc #cabernetfranc from #toscana hand harvested. Delicate, less Mediterranean than I expected and actually more like a Loire style. — 9 months ago

Château Fleur Haut Gaussens

"La Bergeronnette" Bordeaux Supérieur Cabernet Franc 2016

Outstanding #cabernetfranc Bordeaux Superior recommended by the sommelier at one of my favorite restaurants had us scrambling to search out the local importer/retailer. Fragrant, layered aromas, violets, underbrush, black/blue fruit - lovely acidity, nice fruit/earth balance, gossamer tannins and paired beautifully across our table from Wagyu-style steak to Lobster bisque in a puff pastry. — a year ago

Mascota Vineyards

La Mascota Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2018

Exemplary QPR #mendoza #cabernetfranc - beautiful violet, wet slate, softly spiced cassis aromas as this deeply extracted wine awakens in the glass. Chic balance of tension, bramble fruit and finely structured tannins on a long coasting finish. ~$15 at Total Wine. — 2 years ago

Nice Winery

Proprietary Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Yet another superb red blend from Nice Winery. 54% #cabernetsauvignon / 16% #merlot / 14% #malbec / 12% #petitverdot / 4% #cabernetfranc - it pays homage to all of the great varietals of Bordeaux. With a modest 13.8% ABV, it overflows with wafts of dark bramble fruit, leather, sous bois, lovely acidity, earth and lush California fruit in balance. Paired marvelously with grilled steak. — a year ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

Fantastic, classic #chinon - savory, subtle crushed black/blue fruit compote nose, characteristic #cabernetfranc green pepper and violet notes. Gushing acidity on palate, touch of cocoa, velvety tannins. This may be one of the most verstatile food pairing wines but just as enjoyable as a night cap. — a year ago

Intrinsic Wine Co.

Horseheaven Hills Red Blend 2018

Well balanced but unapologetically fruit forward #columbiavalley #cabernetfranc #malbec blend. Broad dark fruit and a touch of peppery spice nose. Rich cassis liqueur mouthfeel and taste set against a juicy acidic frame and more peppery notes on the finish. Paired nicely with basic delivery pizza. — 2 years ago
