*3R* 2018 Les Cerisiers de Targe Saumur-Champigny (Loire Valley, FR)

Weight: 3R

Varietal: Cabernet Franc

Region: Saumur-Champigny, Loire Valley, France

Hailing from a family estate going back to 1655, this is an utterly textbook representation of Loire Valley Cabernet Franc! Farmed organically, this light-bodied red wine is expressive with notes of blackcurrant, redcurrant, violet flowers, and just a touch of peppery spice. An extended cold maceration gives the wine a beautifully floral complexion, and it loves a slight chill. Try it with fresh goat cheese or grilled veggies!
