2010 Seven of Hearts Chateau Figareaux Cabernet Franc Columbia Valley

ENObytes, October 24, 2012. By: Marc Hinton. There is a lot going on in this bottle and it is anxiously awaiting being poured into your glass so it can strut its stuff. This variety when produced in the Northwest does not amplify the dusty sometimes-harsh tannins associated with this grape when it is produced in other growing regions.
