Zhigalova Cabernet Franc 2014

Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $16

Cellar Tracker


Aaron: Rocky mountains of granite with chili peppers make up the nose of this Cab Franc.  Tart, red berries hit the back of the throat while spicy chili powder and harissa-covered cherries glide through after the initial shock.  The spiciness tends to linger for a long time.  89 points

Teri: White pepper and raspberry nose with a medium body and a smooth but slightly bitter flavor. I tasted tart cherry, rhubarb, and white pepper with leafy greens on the finish. Nothing extraordinary on this wine. 86 points
