Alpha Omega Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley 2012

IMG_0982

If you have read my posts on Alpha Omega, you will know that both Sandra and I are huge fans of the winery and the wine they produce.  The Cabernet Franc is a great example of their level of wine making.  Sandra is a big fan of Cabernet Franc’s and when Alpha Omega came out with theirs, we were there to sample it (and buy it).  I will admit here that I am biased, but this is a very good bottle of wine.  I will keep this short.

Nose:  The nose on this Cabernet Franc was light and had some spice and strawberry notes.  The nose was enjoyable.

Tasting phase:  The tasting phase had some spice notes, with a slight berry notes.  I will go as far as to say there was some tangy notes, to the tasting phase.

Finish:  The finish had spice and strawberry notes.  I found the wine pulls from the back of the tongue.  The finish had a quality to it that I have come to expect from Alpha Omega wines.

I can solve the riddle of if we have purchased more of this wine and we have.  We are headed to the winery this weekend  for a private tasting, with the Director of Sales.  He wants some input on the experience at the winery, for its customers.  By the way, the view from the tasting area is great in the winter months.  Mountains, fog, clouds, and cool weather equal a great tasting experience.
