Drink of the Week: Clos Roche Blanche Touraine 2009

Now that we’re fully surrendering to the change in seasons, the cooler weather has us reaching for familiar comfort flavors, and today’s Drink of the Week, the 2009 Touraine from Clos Roche Blanche is one of those reliable favorites. Year after year, we fill our glasses with this organically farmed Cabernet Franc (the parent grape to Cabernet Sauvignon) for its savory and satisfying mix of fresh strawberry, green pepper and dried herb flavors. A vibrant match to hearty stews and pasta dishes, consider this wine your warm, wool sweater on a blustery fall day.
