2011 Chateau La Grave Fronsac

I have to admit i dont know much about Fronsac other than i really like saying “fronSAC!” and laying some extra zeal on the final consonant to help communicate my impatience to get away from the saying and on with drinking. ┬áThis was a very special little bottle, shared at Swoon with my honey during a lovely wine tasting/B&B weekend in the Hudson valley. We celebrated the 20th anniversary of my 20th birthday, and drank a toast to our happy healthy son. The wine held up very nicely on the heels of a couple of glasses of Malbec, Swoon’s proprietor reccoed this when we said we like “earthy, dirty cherries” please.
