Our Favorite Reds for Spring
The Wine Cognoscenti Recommend
Cabernet Franc. As you can see, I enjoyed it w/ grilled dried aged burgers last year.
"Fresh berries and violets are synonymous with spring. Add approachability, herbal nuances, balanced acidity, a dash of spice, and light tannins and you’re ready to fire up the pit and enjoy the day with friends and a good bottle of Cabernet Franc. On the next visit to your local wine shop, ask the salesperson if he or she can recommend a solid bottle of Cabernet Franc or Loire Valley Chinon (same grape just named after the French appellation). You should be able to find something for under $20 that’s both satisfying and marries well with grilled fare."
