Basic info: La Source du Ruault, “Clos de la Cote” Loire Valley, France – 2011
Price estimate: $25 (Chamber Street Wine)
Look: Plum, black cherry in color with significant legs
Smell: mild earth
Taste: mild earth, unripe raspberry and slightly harsh. Dry, short finish.
Conclusions: Drinkable. Not bad, but not the best Cab Franc ever.
Other notes: Ed, Erin and Bob made the tasting notes for this wine. We all had it with dinner, but I didn’t care for it as much and found it a little hard to drink. Ed is a huge Cab Franc fan, so it was his opinion I was really interested in. He found the wine good, but not great.
From the bottle: No tasting notes on the bottle or from Chamber Street. 12.5% alcohol by volume.
