Cherries and Currants! If these make your mouth water, then the 2018 Fancy Farm Girl Flamboyant Red is for you! A favourite of customers and staff (and Staff) alike,Flamboyant Red is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Franc (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Merlot (15%).
It is an approachable red, fabulous for weeknight sipping or weekend fine dining. Dry, with a gorgeous currant and cherry tang that is rounded out by deeper blackberry notes on the mid-palate, with balanced tannins. Flamboyant Red is medium-bodied, making it versatile enough to pair with anything from Philly Cheesesteak to Coq au Vin.
This was a featured wine in September's Wine Club package, 2021.
