Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc, a red wine, usually offers a spicy, peppery taste. Last night we had a Thai dinner, basically rice pasta with chicken and peanut sauce. Since we were a little low on white wines, we opted to trying a Cabernet Franc 2005 from Creekside Cellars in Evergreen, Colorado. The wine seemed to bring out spices in the main dish. The Cabernet Franc 2005 was a gold medal winner. At the dinner table, one person immediately noticed the alcohol level asking what it was. With an alcohol level of 14.5 percent, the wine offered black fruit aromas and taste with tannins. Another dinner guest said that it was the best Cabernet Franc he has tasted. Creekside Cellar wines are hands-on crafted and the emphasis is on quality wines.

Early in the fall, we had the opportunity to visit Creekside Cellars in Colorado and discovered a small hands-on winery that emphasizes food and wine. Creekside Cellars is also an Italian Café. The Italian menu is wonderful. One can spend hours enjoying the food, wine and location. While we visited, we enjoyed tasting numerous wines along with the Italian Antipasto Platter. This platter offered numerous items to pair with a variety of wines.

Evergreen, Colorado is located west of Denver and is a delightful small town with a small town atmosphere. Enjoy strolling along the main street and browsing. Plan your stop at the Italian Café with their hours in mind. They are usually open between 11am and 5pm and stop serving food at 4pm.

Creekside Cellars has won numerous awards for their wines so be sure to stop by when you are visiting Evergreen, Colorado.
