Jeff Runquist 2012 Cabernet Franc Amador County

IMG_0977

This bottle of Jeff Runquist 2012 Cabernet Franc, was sourced at a tasting room in Amador County.  This tasting trip was part an invite from a vendor, who is a friend of mine.  Friend first, vendor second.  I have never heard of Jeff Runquist, but I can tell you he is a talented guy.  I do not have very detailed notes on this wine, because the bottle was opened and drank rather quickly.  Sandra and I enjoyed it.

To the wine:

Nose:  The nose on this Cabernet Franc was full of berry and spice notes.  I would say the nose was medium in intensity.

Tasting Phase:  During the tasting phase, the wine gives you a medium heat with a strong spice note.  I found this to be very enjoyable and balanced.

Finish:  The finish was warm and full of spice notes.  I found the finish fades quickly and is a little light.  I found the finish to be of quality and the wine is distinct.

In the end, would I buy this wine again and the answer is yes.  I do not get to Amador county very often, so the next time I am up there, I will be stopping by the tasting room
