Domaine Filliatreau Chateau Fouquet Samur 2009, Loire, France - $16.25

This Loire Valley Cabernet Franc is a Louis/Dressner selection, and it's really nice and fresh! The folks at Austin Wine Merchant suggested it to me because I liked the Les Chien-Chien Chinon 2006 so much but they were out of it.

Aroma - red and dark fruit, a little cedar-vanilla
Taste - red and dark fruit, moderate tannins, acidic, black tea/cedar box finish

I like this wine, but not as much as I love Les Chien-Chien. But it's a nice choice.
