TASTING NOTE: Made from Cabernet Franc, this eye-catching pink wine has aromas of red pepper jelly, maraschino cherry and citrus zest. Tons of acidity leads to sour raspberry, sour cherry, crunchy red plum and apple skin on the palate, and the finish is a real lip-smacker. Pour it with barbecued chicken, or a pizza with bell peppers and arugula. (Vintages panel, April 2018) Price $ 15.95
