A recommended wine in Eric Asimov's November 14th, 2013 New York Times column on Thanksgiving wines, describing it as "earthy and pleasantly bitter, an excellent choice."The 2009 Cabernet Franc presents, most prominently, deep base notes of raspberry, coffee and dark chocolate. Thyme, violet and smoke add top notes and dimension. In the mouth, this wine is fresh and displays abundant cherry and raspberry flavors. Notes of licorice, wood smoke and bay leaf add complexity to the bright fruit components. This wine’s most beguiling feature is its soft, satiny texture—an attribute that defines Fox Run Vineyards’ Cabernet Franc.
