Raymond Burr Vineyards
2010 Cabernet Franc
California: Sonoma County: Dry Creek Valley
King of Franc
SPECIAL ALERT: We sold out of the previous vintage of this wine in record time. We also expect today’s allocation to sell out, so please act quickly. While we hate to have disappointed Operatives, we purchased every bottle that we could. Please act quickly.
We have always gone crazy for Raymond Burr Vineyards’ wines. We are especially enamored with their Cabernet Franc. When we showcased their 2009 Franc, our large allocation sold out before 6pm. For today’s sale, we were not able to get our hands on much more, so it will sell out.
This 2010 is a youthful, bright and delicious wine that is drinking very well, now, but shows great promise. We recommend that you buy enough bottles to lay some down to enjoy over the course of the next few years.
This 2010 is cleaner and more restrained that in previous vintages, giving it a bright, medium-bodied and easy-going overall appeal. Decant for at least 30 minutes for best results.
Deep crimson hues through a slightly darker core. As you swirl the wine, bright ruby highlights glint in the light.
Lush and dark with bold plum, cedar, black cherry, blackberry, cherry cola, saddle leather, and creme brulée.
Tart black cherry, young blackberry, early plum, cedar, subtle herbal notes and a hint of black pepper.
Long and bright with flavors that present as tart at the edges and dark stonefruit at the center.
This wine would be wonderful with a sautéed chicken with rosemary and garlic.
