Mission Briefing

Codename:

Random act of kindness

Today’s 2010 Random Ridge Cabernet Franc is a beautiful example of the varietal and deserves special recognition as a Superior Wine.

This is one of the last of the great wines to hail from the extraordinary 2010 vintage, which was awarded 99 points by Wine Spectator Magazine.

Quantity is very limited and we are expected to sell out.

Aromas abound in this juicy, balanced wine, beginning with Bing cherry, strawberry, raspberry and red currant. These are followed by tobacco, spiced cherry candy, cigar box and mixed dark spice.

On the palate, this wine is juicy, delicious and packed with flavors of raspberry, smoky cherry, strawberry jam, cracked earth, subtle spice, baker’s chocolate, flint and cracked pepper.

This wine is a near palate-perfect example of Cabernet Franc, and we are very pleased to offer it to you with our fullest recommendation.

Just don’t dally… This wine will sell out.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep garnet with a darker core and bright red edging. Multiple rounds of tall, thin legs meander down the glass wall after swirling.

Smell:

Bing cherry, strawberry, raspberry, red currant, tobacco, spiced cherry candy, cigar box and mixed dark spice.

Taste:

Raspberry, smoky cherry, strawberry jam, cracked earth, subtle spice, baker’s chocolate, flint and cracked pepper.

Finish:

Very long and quite plush. Medium tannins provide a great framework to this juicy, balanced delight.

Pairing:

Cabernet Franc is one of the most food-friendly wines there is. Enjoy with everything from hearty grilled meats, to more refined fish and fowl recipes.
