Peju 2007 Cabernet Franc – Napa Valley, Rutherford
As a wine club member of this wonderful winery, one of the smaller vineyards and a bit spendy, all of their wines are yummy! If I had to choose between the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, my pick is definitely the Cabernet Franc. About a couple years ago, we went tasting and for me, I like doing side by side comparisons after I’ve already completed the tasting, then revisit the ones I really enjoyed. Their Cabs are ones that definitely need to be aerated or need time to breathe. So, after my side by side comparison of the Peju Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc, the Cabernet Franc seemed a bit more smoother. The 2007 Cabernet Franc has a wonderful bouquet, deep rich color, and soft tannins. Definitely a wine to enjoy by itself. But then again, it’s your preference.
