Wine Wednesday: A Pennsylvania Red

Folks, it’s Wednesday! And you know what that means…Wine-day!

About a week ago I was craving some red wine with dinner and noticed our rack of reds was frighteningly low, yikes! I still have yet to rectify that little situation, but it forced me to dust off a bottle that I all but forgot about!

While visiting friends in Tunkhannock, PA last fall, we all decided to stop by the Nimble Hill Winery. After trying various reds and whites, the Cabernet Franc 2011 vintage stood out, and I decided to bring a bottle back of this Pennsylvania table wine.

Nearly a year later, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I cracked open this bottle, but it was fantastic!

It’s full-bodied, with hints of cinnamon, spices, berries, and I could almost taste a little bit of smokiness.

How I feel whenever I say things like that!

I grew up in the Northeastern Pennsylvania area (NEPA, as it is affectionately known), so I’m familiar with Tunkhannock. What I was not aware of, however, was this great winery! If I recall correctly, the tastings at Nimble Hill were about $2 for 8 wines – a great way to try a bunch of different varieties. I can’t wait to go back 🙂

Cheers!

Question for you:

What’s your favorite red?
