Thierry Germain, Domaine Des Roches Neuves Saumur Champigny 2014, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A middle-of-the pack cabernet franc with body and some character.
Purple-to-ruby in color, this wine has a nose of cedar, black plum, dried-crushed violet and forest floor.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc is smooth in texture with a velvety finish and grippy, medium tannin.
There are flavors of purple fruit suggested on the nose.
