Cabernet Franc

There isn't a lot of wine from Colorado that shows up in Ohio, but the several that I've had the privilege to drink have been good, serviceable wines.  That's the case witih the latest one, a Boulder Creek Winery 2009 Cabernet Franc.

This is a full bodied wine that still retains some agility in the form of good acid and a definite perkiness.  Lots of bright cherry and berry aromas and flavors in this wine and just enough tannin to support everything.  Nothing brooding and deep here, just a happy wine that went well with a meal of braised beef short ribs and some fresh polenta. 

Boulder Creek Winery 2009 Colorado Cabernet Franc.  14.1% alcohol.  The wine was a gift from a friend.
