Village Winery Cabernet Franc 2005
The last time we visited Village Winery, we enjoyed and adopted a few bottles of the nicely done Cabernet Franc 2005. After whipping up some seasoned basmati rice, sautéed mushrooms and onions, and Italian styled meatballs, it was off to the wine fridge to find a friendly match. As you might have guessed, the Village Winery 2005 was taken off the now famous ‘wine row’ and uncorked.
Review: The Village Winery Cabernet Franc 2005 is a medium bodied wine that displays a nice deep garnet color. On the nose are aromas of red fruit, spice and subtle herbs. Flavors of red fruit, pepper and spice, with herbal nuances follow through on the palate. The wine is nicely balanced with a good level of acidity and friendly tannins. The Village Cabernet Franc 2005 paired quite well with my quick toss-up meal and would pair well with chicken, roasted lamb, red sauce and beef dishes.
Vine Spot recommends a visit to this young winery located in Waterford , VA. Besides the nicely done Cabernet Franc, Village Winery offers a Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend, Merlot, an Apple wine made from local fruit and an interesting and tasty Elderberry wine.
