Last Nights Wine
2004 Autumn Hill Cabernet Franc
We picked this one up at one of the six weekends that Autumn Hill is open during the year. While we were there we took part in the cellar tour and barrel tasting which featured the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon. We enjoyed lunch on their nice large deck and soaked up the sun and enjoyed a pleasant conversation with owner/winemaker Ed.
Nose: Cherry, Raspberry, Chocolate
Taste: Raspberry, "dark fruit", green pepper, cinnamon
Mouthfeel: Smooth Tannins, silky light/medium bodied texture
Finish: The checkered flag came a little earlier but is to be expected from a VA wine
Good Wine, very enjoyable, although the Green Pepper did show up on the taste, it isn't the over herbacious Cab Franc that sometimes arises in VA. (B) $18.95
