Sodaro Estate Winery
2008 Felicity Cabernet Franc
California: Napa Valley: Coombsville
Today marks the long awaited return of Sodaro Estate. This time around, with a very exclusive and limited allocation of their unreleased 2008 Cabernet Franc. When Agent Red found out that there were only a handful of cases of this wine available in the winery’s private library, he rushed to secure every last case for our Franc-loving operatives.
Today’s 2008 Sodaro Estates Cabernet Franc is an extraordinary wine. With layers of lush aromatics this wine had our entire tasting panel inhaling the wine for ages before ever even tasting the wine. Flavors, which are absolutely delicious, are bold but perfectly balanced.
There is very little of this wine available, relative to the demand that we anticipate, so please rush to secure your bottles of this very highly recommended wine.
Beautiful deep magenta hues transition to a wide band of pure ruby at the edge.
Lush notes of chocolate covered cherry and blueberry, briar patch, sweet tobacco, black tea leaf, and hard leather.
Velvety soft mouth feel ushers in flavors of blackberry juice, black cherry, dark baker’s chocolate, dried Virginia tobacco leaf, and subtle brown spice.
Velvet-smooth and ultra long, with lingering fruit flavors that gradually give way to sweet tobacco, spice and a hint of black pepper at the tail end.
Our agents paired this Cabernet Franc with a juicy New York strip steak with a side of bacon-loaded mashed potatoes. Vegetarians may enjoy artichokes stuffed with breadcrumbs, aged gouda, lemon, and black pepper.
