Januik Weinbau Vineyard Columbia Valley 2010 Cabernet Franc $25.24-$32.99, 89 points, begins in the glass as a deep purple/red with a thin clear rim.
A quickly evolving aroma transitions from petrol notes to a grapey floral and chocolate with alcohol (14.4%).
Having a near full body, good acidity with mild-plus tannin, this Cab-Franc builds upon a fair structure that allows a plum-wine, licorice, and floral red cherry to shine.
The finish builds upon spice and heat.
Quality, Price, Ratio (QPR), is an issue best determined by you, the wine drinker; generally speaking this is not a wine or a varietal that makes sense for prosaic wine tasting, for common dinner affairs, or as a value red wine choice, but if you are interested in expanding your wine experience, the Januik Weinbau Vineyard Columbia Valley 2010 Cabernet Franc is a good choice.
