2009 TWO BLONDES CABERNET FRANC
2 Blondes '09 shows the dark side of Cabernet Franc from the dense black/ruby tone to the earthy/blackberry aromas to the cassis/cocoa flavors. None the less there is a thread of floral notes that completes this exquisite varietal example. Unblended, 100% Cabernet Franc. Salmon and lamb pair beautifully with this.
