2016 Cabernet Franc (Dr. Heyden)

Dr. Heyden, Cabernet Franc, Rheinhessen, Germany 2016

{sustainable} 100% Cabernet Franc


Carrying itself a bit more sternly than Heyden's wonderful Pinot Noir offerings, this unexpected gem is intense and more reminiscent of New World renditions than the sleeker Cab Francs typically associated with the Middle Loire. Ripe, structured, and built for the long hall (yet captivatingly assertive right now!), there's also a strong resemblance to modern Right Bank Bordeaux – an impressive conversation piece and fantastic addition to a romantic autumn evening or mountain getaway.

Serving suggestion: Smoked boar sausage w/ cranberries & winter salad w/ ribboned beets, fennel root, hazelnuts, & sour cream. Baked potato pancakes w/ caramelized onions, leek, thyme, & caraway seeds.
