Domaine du Bel Air, "les Vingt lieux dits", Bourgueil, 2006.

This was really one of the most delicious wines I've had in long time, just spectacularly wonderful! Bags of ripe red fruit, ripe, soft tannins and that edge of acidity that makesLoire Cab Franc so refreshing and totally gulpable. I did not want to share, but sadly I was at a dinner party, so I had to.

It's $17.99 at the Cheese Store of Silverlake.

Here's hoping there's a Loire Cab Franc on the exam for you. It'll be a banker.
