Holiday dinners, cozy nights spent by the fire and family gatherings call for a truly special wine. This month, Peju Wine Ambassador Ryan Avila highlights our Peju 2012 Cabernet Franc Reserve as your go-to winter wine.
1. What is your chosen “Wine of the Month” and why?
Overall it was a difficult decision, but I finally narrowed it down to one and that would be our 2012 Cabernet Franc Reserve
2. What is your favorite thing about it? What is special/spectacular/unique about this wine?
This wine is restrained and nuanced in a new world kind of way.
3. How would you describe the aromas and taste of this wine?
Our 2012 Cabernet Franc Reserve has ample weight and body. It showcases a bit of a spicier profile with explosive black fruit from firm berries as well as a juicy, tangy bing cherry component that is very focused.
4. What would you pair it with?
You can pair so much with this wine. It has really herbaceous edges, so I really love it with some charred lamb and mint jelly.
