The 2018 Runquist Cabernet Franc delivers the varietal aroma of Cabernet Franc with gusto. Plenty of zesty green peppers; jalapeño, serrano and problano are accompanied by notes of dark cherry, cedar and graphite. A mild dose of toasted oak provides a subtle bouquet that keeps the emphasis on the varietal fruit. Flavors of roasted peppers and succulent black cherry are delivered by a wine with a mild texture and a smooth lingering finish. This is an easy drinking red wine produced with an eye towards early consumption. Pair it with some Grilled Stuffed Poblanos or a Black Lentil Soup.
