What We’re Drinking – Lieb Cellars Reserve Cabernet Franc

The nose shows the clear Cuban cigar benchmark for North Fork Cabernet Franc. Raspberry is the predominant flavor, with tobacco and vanilla on the mid-palate. This is an interesting food wine, one that will enhance, rather than compete against, most meats. Drink with lamb chops. Recommended. 88 points. DBH
