Weekly Sip: Veritas Cabernet Franc 2004
Review: This is a nice light to medium bodied wine that displays a pleasant ruby color. Cherry and mocha scents are followed by ripe fruits on the palate with nuances of herbs. Soft tannins, with a nice medium finish makes this fruit driven selection the perfect accompaniment to poultry, red meats and most chesses.
I picked this selection up for $15.99 at Total Wine, and like most Virginia Cabernet Francs I enjoyed it. I do plan on visiting the winery sometime soon, as I have heard some very good things about Veritas Vineyards.
Tomorrow marks Vine Spot’s first tasting event and 8 Cabernet Francs will be tasted, so stay tuned for a lot more Cabernet Franc talk and some familiar faces!
