2009 SHERIDAN CABERNET FRANC

Classic Sheridan aromas of crushed rose petals and charcoal compliment an ethereal mouth-feel and flavors of black plum, raspberry and espresso. This is 100% Cabernet Franc and thus expresses more the texture and flavor of the Loire than that of Bordeaux (where it is small in % but big in assertiveness). Salmon and lamb are excellent pairings for this.
