:OutboundPosted: June 7, 2008
A couple of years ago Rick and I went to San Francisco for a long weekend trip with Chris and Herman. Of course we went to Wine Country! The first vineyard we toured was Kunde…as in Monday, Tuesday, Coonday.
The wine is aged in the hill, under the vineyards. At the very back is a large room that can be rented. It would be perfect for a Creepy Party! All the walls were finished with some sort of stucco rock looking stuff, so you felt like you were in a cave. Our guide suggested we stop at the smallest vineyard, Kaz’s Vineyard and Winery.
I ended up joining Kaz’s Wine club. This quarter’s selection (2 bottles) arrived. Man oh man, try as I might, I cannot let that wine sit in the wine rack! I could never be a collector of wine. Outbound, a 2005 Cabernet Franc, was DELICIOUS!! I’ll be checking out more Cab Francs, for sure! This particular label was designed by Kaz’s son Ryan Kaz.
Here’s notes about Outbound…
Our biggest lot yet! 8 whole barrels. Compared to most wineries that is still a laugh, but to us it’s serious business. Being that Cab Franc is loved by the Kaz family we decided that we should have enough of it so that we to could enjoy it ourselves. So often our favorites are gone in a flash. Perhaps Outbound might find its way to our personal cellars… to bad it’s so DAMN GOOD! It won’t stay on the shelves as long as we had hoped. It’s decadent nose and full body are just too good to be true. Why, oh why, did it have to have such a perfect oak flavor? Why didn’t we make more?
