Domaine Bousquet Reserve Cabernet Franc 2020

Star­ting this month, the Argen­ti­nian wine­ma­ker Domai­ne Bous­quet intro­du­ces a new Uco Valley Reser­ve Caber­net Franc to the U.S.

The debut 2020 vin­ta­ge Domai­ne Bous­quet Reser­ve Caber­net Franc joins an exis­ting line of Reser­ve-desig­na­ted varie­tals com­pri­sing their Char­don­nay, Caber­net Sau­vig­non, Mal­bec and Pinot Noir.

All are line-pri­ced at $18 per 750-ml. bottle, and 100% cer­ti­fied organic.

The high-alti­tu­de vine­yards of the Uco Valley, espe­cially in Gual­ta­llary, have beco­me the epi­cen­ter of superb qua­lity caber­net franc with a dis­tin­cti­ve sty­le that has the poten­tial to beco­me a bench­mark for this gra­pe variety, joi­ning the clas­sics from the Loi­re and Bor­deaux,” says Anne Bous­quet, co-owner, Domai­ne Bousquet.

Domai­ne Bous­quet Reser­ve Caber­net Franc 2020 aged six months in French oak. It’s 14.5% ABV, and 100% caber­net franc.

On the nose it has aro­mas typi­cal of the variety, such as roas­ted red pep­per, chi­li, toma­to, leaf and black pep­per, the com­pany reports. The pala­te brings inten­sity and round tan­nins, in line with the fruit on the nose.

This new wine is impor­ted by Ori­gins Orga­nic, Mia­mi, FL. Dis­tri­bu­tion inclu­des the mar­kets CA, CT, DC, DE, IL, KY, MA, MD, NJ, NY, OR, RI, VT and WA.
