Preignes Cabernet Franc/Mourvedre 2007

This was purchased at the same time and for the same reason as this was, the only difference being this wine had a Decanter World Wine Awards sliver medal sticker on it instead of a gold.

Hints of dried chilli pepper on the nose and palate, along with some restrained black fruit (whatever that is). It has a bit of grip to it and a nice, gravelly finish. Definitely a wine of character. I like this producer, and I've only tried two of their wines so far!

For whatever reason these two wines don't show up on Majestic's web site - they must not be available all over the country. If you see them in your local branch, I suggest you try it.
