2017 Le Franc Pays d'Oc Cabernet Sauvignon

Ripe and concentrated, this French Cabernet Sauvignon displays black fruit flavors of plum, cherry and currant on the palate that are interwoven with savory nuances of graphite and herbs. Medium-firm tannins and a balancing acidity provide structure and focus. This would be a delightful complement for a well-marbled steak.

Both Christopher Walken and Al Pacino were considered for the role of Han Solo in the first Star Wars film – Pacino actually turned it down. The role then went to a carpenter named Harrison Ford, who had been working as a carpenter and stagehand for The Doors, after a disappointing spell with acting in small roles.
