Your in for a special treat at 58 Degrees & Holding Co. on Wednesday, August 20th when 58 Degrees & Holding Co will be tasting Peter Franus wines. Like I said, your in for a treat, Peter Franus wines are a joy to sip!
My Favorite, the Napa Valley Zinfandel with a nice juicy grilled burger! Dark ruby in color, it offers a deep, rich, heady nose. Allspice and cinnamon emerge, dominated by blackberry and raspberry with a hint of white pepper. Rose petal and sweet toasty oak complement the aromatic espresso notes of the wine. Think berries and cream when you consider the flavors. Lush and round, an appropriate acidity keeps the wine lively. This is not your "sipping-on-the-patio-by-itself Zinfandel". Drink it with foods you like! Something from the grill is perfect!
The Napa Valley Cab is another favorite with sweet toasty oak, cinnamon and bay notes are surrounded by classic cassis.
The Cab Franc is a tasty one as well. A beautiful medium ruby color draws you in. Classic cedar, earth, truffle, and floral notes with an interesting tension between the toasty oak and fruit. Flavors reflect the nose. A long finish with more cedar expressions.
