We have to be honest, the Crossings Winery 2012 Cabernet Franc did not wow us. It’s not a bad wine. In fact, it’s a perfectly serviceable cab franc. It’s just not a great wine.
Michael got graphite and pink fruit on the nose and tasted red fruit, such as cherry, a little dill or spice, and some marzipan. There was good acid and a nice finish.
Let’s be real – you don’t need a transcendent experience every time you open a bottle. And some days, a perfectly serviceable cab franc is what you want. Whether you’d want to pay $18.50 (the going rate for the 2014 cab franc on the website) for perfectly serviceable is up to you and what your budget can handle.
