Capitelles des Fermes $11.00
A beautifully feminine wine from southern France. Notes of cherry, chocolate, spice with a touch of earthy undertones. Soft, smooth tannin, just an easy drinking wine. At this price it's best to grab a couple for reserves.
100% Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley, France, this little gem is juicy and very drinkable especially with our brie and chevre cheeses. Hints of herbs and red fruits and purple flowers. Enjoy!!
Domaine de la Chanteleuserie translates to "place where the larks sing". This is the land of Cabernet Franc and Bourgueil is among the most age-worthy of the Loire Valley reds, and the wines from Domaine de la Chanteleuserie are no exception. This wine is lovely and vibrant, with fresh red fruit flavors and a clean finish. A perfect Vino for your sunny afternoons on the patio!
Tomasella Cabernet Franc $14.00
A delicious Italian take on Cab Franc with earthy flavors of plum and pepper. No oak gets in the way, just lovely pure fruit. An every day drinker that goes with about anything.
Croix de Mouchet $15.00
A beautiful right bank Bordeaux, sure to please. Aromas of red fruits, plums and earthy notes from the terroir, followed by a vanilla and spice from oak aging. Grippy tannins and decent acid, this St. Emilion is sure to please the French wine lover in you.
Plum Creek Palisade Red $15.00

Durigutti Cabernet Franc $16.00
Say what? Now a Cab Franc from Argentina?? Argentina is taking over! With a dark intense color, hints of baked fruit, violets and vanilla. Nice soft tannins support the ample rich fruit. Argentina has taken another French grape and done it remarkable well!
vigna del lauro $17.00
When Cabernet Franc is brought up, we typically think Loire or Bordeaux. Well, here is a shining example from the northern Italian region of Friuli. Similar to the French, this wine shows delicious, savory earthiness, forest floor and robust red fruits. Lengthy finish and refreshing acidity.
Clos Mazurique $19.00
Along the Loire river you'll find Saumur. Cab Franc dominates the red plantings and we can see a prime example with this bottle. Perfumed floral aromas, dark cherry, forest floor and mineral. Gorgeous mouthfeel and smooth tannic structure. Bright acidity making this wine an easy drinker.
Craggy Range Te Kahu $20.00
This gorgeous red blend comes to us from the equally gorgeous north island of New Zealand. Grown in the renowned Gimblett Gravels vineyard, a quintessential Bordeaux blend of merlot, cab sav and franc, petit verdot and malbec. Big red fruits, herbs, fennel, leather and eucalyptus in a big body blend.
From the south western coast of Tuscany comes this blend of Cab Sav and Cab Franc. The Cab Sav provides the body, structure and dark fruits, the Cab Franc provides smoother tannins and notes of green bell pepper and earth. Subtle leather and blackberry as well. Not really a "super tuscan," but also a super tuscan.
A classic left bank blending of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Great structure and earthiness balanced with loads of dark fruit, Generous concentration and smoothness that is an absolute thrill to drink right now or further down the road. Kermit can pick them!
Argentiera Superiore $92.00
If you liked the Poggio ai Ginepri then this is definitely worth the step up. A little different blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, a true Bordeaux, this little beauty packs on the flavor and finesse. Heavy dark fruits with elegance to spare. One of our GREAT, hard to find gems that is very much worth its weight in gold.
