2008 Gamache Vintners Estate Cabernet Franc


Big, thick and full bodied 100% Cabernet Franc from Columbia Valley, Washington with rich components of baking spice, cola, blueberry, coffee, plum, black currant, dark chocolate, while graced with a dash of dill from the American Oak influence. With moderately heavy tannin and a vanilla tobacco and grassy finish, this wine should definitely be paired with a hearty dish of beef or game and not sipped on its own.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.  

Capezzana Barco Reale di Carmignano 2006


Carmignano is an Italian wine region located in the Tuscany region and centered around the city of Carmignano, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) northwest of Florence and were know for creating “Super Tuscan” wines before they became en vouge.   I was so excited to try this wine from this special region.

I am making an assumption that this wine could have been a little corked judging by the continuous dank flavor in the mid palate venturing all the way through the finish, but this wine as a whole was extremely unbalanced and had a rugged tannin that was very unpleasant.  On a good note, this wine did have a nice bouquet of musk and violets and some rich flavors of dark chocolate, tobacco and toasted oak, but for the most part, this wine was extremely disappointing.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
