Mission Codename Uptown

It’s no secret that Agent Red loves his Cab Franc. Well, he was as giddy as we’ve ever seen him when he tried today’s Cornerstone Cellars 2011 Stepping Stone Napa Valley Cabernet Franc.

One of the reasons Agent Red and so many others love Cab Franc is that it presents a more subtle and nuanced profile than Cab Sauv. For instance, in many high-end Napa Cab Sauvs, you’ll experience a wall of flavor and chewy tannins, without any secondary components. But with Cab Franc, especially wines like today’s, you get layer after layer of soft, delicate flavors, which make it an ideal choice to pair with a big meal or to sip on its own.

If you haven’t been converted into a Cab Franc lover yet, let today’s wine show you the way. We promise you’ll never go back!
