All Aboard

All Aboard - this 2010 red wine blend from Brookview Station Winery is a blend of 40% DeChaunac, 30% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot.

I found it light in body and the Cabernet Franc really comes through on the nose with aromas of raspberry and spice.

I found sweet cherry, some black fruit and nice subtle black pepper spice on the palate.  It had a lingering finish of sweet black fruit. But something was off to me.  I keep coming back to the word sweet. The sweetness did leave a sweet aftertaste in my mouth.  After a little research I found out that this wine has 1.3% residual sugar.

If you like your red wines slightly sweet, with no tannins, this is a wine you should try.  It sells for $11.99 in their tasting room.
