This week’s W.O.W. is 100% Cabernet Franc, the red grape most beloved to France’s Loire Valley. For five generations, the Gouron family has made wine at their Chinon estate. Medium-bodied and packed with flavor, this is the ultimate summer red!

90 Points, Wine Spectator: “Fresh, ripe and focused, with lovely purity to the core of cassis and plum fruit, showing light sanguine and iron hints. Features a savory- and bay leaf-edged finish. Drink now through 2019.”
Get to know the other Cabernet. This wine is great on its own and excellent with food. Perfect with barbecued chicken!
