Adair Vineyards 07 Cabernet Franc

Marc Stopkie owner/winemaker of Adair Vineyards has produced his first Estate Grown Cabernet Franc. This Cab Franc is the first to be produced with his young vines. There are only 40 cases made.

I like my Cab Franc with a little spice on the end. Marc told me he made it more fruit forward and it didn't have the spice on the end. He told me that he and Lori like it that way. It's all a matter of opinion, likes and dislikes when it comes to crafting a wine.

The color was very nice. On the nose I smelled a little earth. I didn't get a lot of flavors at first. The wine was very smooth. As the wine sat and opened, I got the flavors of cherry.

This wine is a drink now wine. I wouldn't purchase this wine to cellar it. I think it would go well with a pork dish.
