Westover Cabernet Franc 2012

Westover Cab FrancPurchased from the Westover Tasting Room, around $20


Aaron:  Thankfully not all the Westover bottles have gone bad (we have a lot of Chardonnays which just aren’t good anymore).  This had a great nose with lots of berry and dark fruit.  Flavor is full and slightly sweet but the tannins are a bit sharp.  I like the taste but the bite is a little troubling.  Full and soft on the tongue but the swallow can be spiny if you don’t let it sit and mellow out in your mouth.  93 points

Teri: A dark raspberry color with medium/quick legs on the glass make way to a blackberry pie smell. The dark rich flavors of this wine (chocolate, blackberry, and nutmeg) are smooth and slightly jammy–perfect for those who like those bold but smooth red wines. Dark, rich, and easy to drink…this bottle is a great find all around. 92 points
