Lang & Reed Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 2007
Showing clear and brilliant deep red color with youthful violet on the edge, the aromatics of this wine are a little darker than previous vintages with black cherry, sage and herbs de province overlaid with a touch of cedar and cigar box scents. The wine hits the palate in a smooth flow of that black cherry and smooth tannins making this a rich but easily quaffable wine. The attributes are best displayed if the wine is served cool to the touch.
This is cabernet franc is a lite, fruity wine. The tannins are light. There is a hint of pepper with the berry. The finish was very clean. We had this while eating at a a variety of foods. It did not overpower any of the various dishes we tasted. An excellent choice.
a nice cab franc, light-medium bodied, nice plummy fruit with some vegetal notes.
