It’s Monday and a rainy day in May. It’s cool outside and you are having grilled cheese & fries for dinner–pure comfort. So, what do you pair with that combo? Cabernet Franc from Great Shoals, of course! It’s bold, but not overpowering. It’s not dry and not sweet but robust and full bodied making it perfect for the weather. There’s a very slight peppery-ness on the nose and it has 13.5% alcohol which is always perfect for the first day of the work week. And considering Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are two of my favorite grapes, happy Monday folks!!

We highly recommend Great Shoals as a winery to visit and their wine club is awesome.  The staff is great and Matt, the winemaker, is a pleasure to talk to and he’s so creative. Check them out for sure. Don’t be surprised to see us pouring this summer/fall for one of their wine festivals. Yes, we like them that much.

Now off to finish my glass. Mmm…what will Tuesday bring?
