Deep ruby-purple with a knockout nose of blueberries, coffee and cocoa. Mouth filling flavors of plum, raspberry, chocolate and … there it is again, blueberry. If you’re sensing a pattern here, it’s because of the Cabernet Franc. Moon Mountain Vineyard does very well with the varietal and our Right Bank Blend is Exhibit A. This wine is lively, tangy, and youthful. It’s acidity focuses the flavors on your tongue. Swirl it and cherry turns to cranberry. Swirl it again and baking chocolate turns to clove. The finish is chewy but not so chewy your mind has time to wander. You’re thinking about your next glass, aren’t you?
