I'm no sommelier, but I was lucky enough to attend a wine tasting event as a guest at a lovely little lavender farm outside Seattle recently. Gamache featured around a dozen of their excellent wines at the event, and my favorites were their single varietals out of their own vineyards. They had their Nicolas and Red Mountain Heritage wines there to impress, but this Cab Franc was shockingly good. At the current price, it's an absolute steal. It's got plenty of body, and while I believe it will age beautifully, it doesn't deserve to be cloistered in a cave. Drink up!
