US, VA, Monticello, Cardinal Point Reserve, Cabernet Franc 2006
++ // Fruity // Cherry, Apple // Red Apple, Green Pepper, Oak // Full
This was an eminently drinkable wine. With deep fruit flavors balanced with a strong oak backbone, it was a great sipping wine. While winemakers consider it a flaw of the grape, it even had a hint of green pepper that we enjoy in Cabernet Franc, as a special character that sets it apart from other red wines.
