I have just recently had a few glasses from this bottle I ordered from the recent Chilean offer:
I was anticipating something else having “grown up” on and adored fully ripe Hungarian Cabernet Francs. What struck me was that it tasted quite vegetal… then I did a little research (that is a nicer way of saying I googled “cabernet frank flavour profile”) and was quite shocked that bell pepper is to be looked forward in single varietals from this grape. Also what I thought was vegetal was strikingly bell pepper in hindsight (always twenty twenty). The moral of the story?
I need to be more careful with cool climate cabernet franc.
If you ever wondered what bell pepper tastes like in wine, go for this bottle.
Apologies for this ramble… here is a poll - Do you enjoy the taste of bell pepper in your wine?
