New York Cork Report Raves About Tousey 2010 Cabernet Franc

Editor-in-Chief Lenn Thompson wrote a glowing review of Tousey 2010 Cabernet Franc.

Plummy, with crushed blackberries, tobacco leaf, subtle herbs, the nose also shows hints of brown sugar, milk chocolate and spice.

The medium-bodied palate is earthy and chocolatey with ripe dark fruit, some oak, and spice flavors. The tannins are soft, but provide just enough structure. The finish brings dried autumn leaves and lingers just a bit.

This is Tousey's second wonderful review from NYCR. Thompson writes that Tousey immediately moves to near the top of quality wine producers in the Valley.

Try some!
