Next was Southbrook 2008 Triomphe Cabernet Franc. This wine is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot. Like the 2010 lots of dark fruits, but here the seem more concentrated. Dark fruits, cherries predominant, but dark raspberry and cassis also seem to come into play This is a little earthier wine, with hints of fallen leaves, dried figs, dates, and other spices. It’s a bigger, deeper wine with a lot of flavor. Impressive!
