Barboursville Vineyards (Virginia) 2012 Cabernet Franc Reserve, $24.99, 90 points, poured leggy with a broad clear wine ring, with the wine being a lovely opaque burgundy purple/red.
The pleasant grapey, earthy, and slightly floral aromas were propitious.
Medium-plus bodied with fair to good acidity and supportive mellow tannins managed a rather complex flavor profile of black fruit, coffee, and tobacco notes.
Finished fair on the trailing palate with some warm spices and a well integrated 14.2% alcohol.
I've looked for this wine for three years and finally found it at the Harvest Market Bedford; The wine buyer should be congratulated for the wine selection as a whole.
