It’s wine Wednesday! It seems that fall has finally arrived in Austin just in time for our our wine pick of the month. This month I chose a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Franciscan Napa Valley Estate to share with you all. I was delighted to find this bottle of wine as it is a perfect balance between smooth and savory, and pairs nicely with a steak or roast.
The winery had this to say about this rich and fruity wine:
“Deep garnet with a lovely plum nose and rich fruit with layers of complexity. Hints of licorice, vanilla, blackberry, tobacco, and leather envelop the fruit. Ripe entry of cherries and cassis showcases a full, well-structured palate. Textured and rich, the mouth-feel is balanced and generous showing layers of ripe berries, black pepper, mocha, and spice. A very long finish that leads you to another sip.”
At $29.00 a bottle, this wine is favorably priced and is an excellent wine to enjoy on a cool fall evening. You can purchase this wine from the winery here, or use their online retail locator to find a bottle at a store near you.
Life is better with good food, good wine and great design,
