2011 Steven Kent Winery Cabernet Franc, Ghielmetti Vinyard, Livermore Valley

This small lot offering from Steven Kent Winery offers an exquisite nose of sweet musk, fresh orange peel, black pepper and clean herbaceousness. With lovely flavors of bay leaf, sage and dry dark fruit, this 100% single estate vineyard Cabernet Franc expresses a  slight hint of creaminess, wet finish and an elegant, lingering tannin. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

2009 Chateau du Petit Thouars Cabernet Franc

This 100% Cabernet Franc from the Touraine Appellation in The Loire Valley has a rich purple hue while offering a nose of concentrated perfume, black currant and white pepper. Expressing juicy dark fruit on the front palate, this medium bodied wine shifts to dryer dark fruit on the mid palate, lending light lingering tannin while finishing with a light, pleasant herbaceousness that faintly lingers. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
