Wine Tasting at Home

Rappahannock Cellars Cabernet Franc 2008
This bottle was opened last night.  I usually prefer to drink from a bottle after it's been open a day.  Color:  dark rich red.  Nose:  blackberries with a mineral background.  Taste:  Slight tannins, creamy taste of dark fruits, acidity resembling oranges.  Pleasant finish.

This is a pleasant Virginia wine grown near our home.  The owners of the winery are wonderful people, and we always feel at home when we visit.   It's so nice to think we live in the midst of Virginia wine country!
