Pre-Trip Tasting: Tiger Mountain Cabernet Franc 2008

Tiger Mountain Cab Franc

Since it’s the day after a holiday, we’re still celebrating by opening a bottle of Tiger Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc (2008)! Whoever thought sticking holidays in the MIDDLE of the week was a good idea anyway? Yeesh.

This light-to-medium bodied table red has a nose of leather, smoky tobacco and strawberry. In the mouth, the wine begins fruit-forward and bright like a Pinot Noir, with a hint of pepper in the middle and a smooth easy finish. Tannins are more present in this wine than in the Rabun Red but it’s still not a huge red that I’d lay down for any length of time.
