Fox Run Cabernet Franc Reserve 2005

The Fox Run Cabernet Franc Reserve is one of my favorite Cabernet Francs. It's deep, rich, earthy, and complex. It fills the mouth with big dark fruit, dark cherries, black berry, dark raspberrys, a touch of cocoa, a touch of prune. It's a wonderful red, that finishes dry and beautiful. A wonderful accomplishment by Peter Bell, winemaker at Fox Run, who was featured in Wine Spectator in January of 2009.

The winery is owned by Scott Osborn, pictured here with Raphael winemaker Richard Olsen-Harbich from the recent Wineries Unlimited.
