2016 Sarriette Pays d'Oc Cabernet Franc

Sarriette is the French word for savory, and it perfectly describes this mouthwatering and tasty red. A textbook Cabernet Franc, it displays dried herb-inflected flavors of red currant, balanced by a vein of acidity and appetizing tannins. This is a wine that would make a harmonious partner for dishes heavy on the umami, like an herb-marinated steak.
