In This Bordeaux varietal is not often found on its own, and is more frequently blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux grapes. That’s too bad, because Franc has a lovely character. In very general terms, Cab Franc is lighter in tannins, and more spicy and fruit-forward than its Sauvignon cousin. Bob Pedroni’s vineyard at the far south end of Dry Creek Valley expresses a consistent profile in Cabernet Franc: nutmeg, green olive, violet and dark berry.  You’ll find fresh notes of cherry cola and dusty wood on the nose, and a spicy character leading to a long finish on the palate. Savor that finish, with  lingering notes of warm white pepper and fennel, and a gentle reminder of blackberry cobbler.  Imagine this wine with a Moroccan Chicken Tagine, or lamb grilled over rosemary.
