100% Cabernet Franc
The Lamadrid doesn’t go through any stabilization or clarification (music to my ears!), so you can expect the wine to have a slightly cloudy appearance.
Not your typical Cabernet Franc on the nose, instead more of a blend of dried herbs, truffle, and cloves intermingled with black fruit. The palate shows mainly plum and blackberry, but also has a decent helping of “secondary” flavors, with leather, tobacco, mint, vanilla and oak. Smooth and bold, with a sizeable finish. This wine should be more expensive!
Lamb meatballs with fresh basil, tomato soup, lasagna, game, red sauce pasta, veal, prosciutto, or rosemary crusted Manchego cheese.
