Les Chiens-Chiens Cabernet Franc 2007, Chinon, France - $17

This wine from Domaine de la Noblaie in the Loire Valley was rated 90 points by Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, and costs $17/bottle at the Austin Wine Merchant.

Aroma - black fruit, black olives
Taste - darkest fruit, black olives/vegetal, moderate tannins, very long finish

I loved the 2006 vintage of this wine. This one is a little more olive and less fruity than last year's. I've saved four bottles of this wine for future years - I think it'll age nicely.
