Cannabis Wine Gaining Ground in California. ~ It seems that a select few California wineries are secretly producing wines laced with cannabis, according to The Drinks Business, and Cabernet Sauvignon seems to be the grape variety of choice for the blend.

A well-made Cabernet Franc is without a doubt one of my favorite wines; although very few wineries produce a pure varietal wine from this little-know Bordeaux grape, and it’s usually overshadowed in blends by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Pure expressions of Cab Franc are fairly difficult to find, but I can’t encourage you enough to try and seek out a bottle for yourself and let me know your thoughts!

    do you have a suggestion for a pure cab franc? It's my favorite type but I haven't encountered any that weren't partially mixed

    I do really like the Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Franc (from the review). I also like Mont Gras (Chilean) and Lang & Reed (California). Decent Cab Franc does have a tendency to start getting expensive though!

Merlot: Less tannic than cabernet sauvignon, this red wine grape produces dark wines that are generally full-bodied, high in alcohol, and with notes of chocolate and plum. The most widely planted grape variety in Bordeaux, it can make wines that range from easy-drinkers to prized bottles worth aging. Food Pairing: Because of its diversity, there are a lot of options here — everything from grilled meats and blue cheeses to salmon and mushrooms.

The Darioush Estate takes a true minimal interventionist approach to their winemaking, something which I was always find refreshing to hear! All their grapes are hand-harvested and hard-sorted. Their wines are also bottled without filtration, a step which although meaning an increase in sediment and an almost hazy appearance to the wine, doesn’t strip the wine of much of its flavor and yields a much more “natural” end product
