"Acidity defines the essence of good Cabernet Franc. Decidedly less tannic and lighter on its feet than its child Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc lights up the palate, but rarely caresses it. Sanzay’s Poyeux’s permeates the palate with dark cherry, unsweetened cocoapowder and a suggestion of bitter herbs: A little bitterness is a fine counterpoint to ripe fruit. Importantly, the fluid acidity keeps everything moving and alive and this will age well: Drink this beauty now through 2026."
"Apothic Red is the bold and intriguing blend that launched the Apothic legacy, featuring notes of black cherry and dark red fruit. On the palate there's flavors of mocha and vanilla."
