I picked up this wine at a Fresh and Easy for about $8. Where I live, generally speaking, you don't see a Cab Franc for less than $20 -- if you can find it.

This is a tannic, angry, GRINCHY wine. The first sniff freaking stabbed me in the nose. Only after about 30 minutes of breathing did it become somewhat drinkable and showed the cherries, smoky, and green notes that are typical of Cab Franc, but it's still pretty damn bad.

On the other hand I've got a few blood oranges in the fridge and some berries in the freezer. Sangria, here I come.

There's a ton of Cab Franc produced here on the east coast. It's generally fairly fruity and smooth, often lacking in character if not done right. Sometimes a little tannic, sometimes not. I've never had one I would call "angry" though.

We do sometimes see them for as little as $10.

It's the "you can't go wrong" grape from the local vineyards.

Where I am, if you find a cab franc for under $10, something is wrong with it. Sangria is a good idea.
