Food Pairings for Meeker Cabernet Franc Alexander Valley
Another Meeker wine that thrills the pallet! This Alexander Valley Cab Franc is a juicy strawberry, oaky-chocolate tannin packed powerhouse. We enjoyed ours on a recent camping trip with campfire-baked potatoes and roasted marshmallows. It was odd pairing, to be sure, but this great wine held up!
Varietals: 87% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot Alcohol: 14.6% by volume Appellation: Alexander Valley Oak Program: Mixed new and used French and American barrels Tasting Notes: Our first-ever Cabernet Franc opens the show like the star it deserves to be. Matt says this wine’s bouquet has four dimensions: First, there’s mocha. Then ripe Santa Rosa plums. Then chocolate. And then, once again, more chocolate. Go ahead, take a sip! The wine immediately coats the inside of your mouth with sweet cassis and dark fruit flavors, complemented by smooth tannins and a touch of oak. Then, at the finish, there’s a hint of dark-chocolate-covered strawberries that persists like a beach-house guest who just won’t go home. This wine is drinking great now, but with time in your cellar, it will no doubt achieve superstar status.
