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
