We tasted the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, the 2011 Petit Manseng, the 2010 Cabernet Franc, and the 2009 Petit Verdot. We purchased the Petit Manseng and the Cabernet Franc as we didn't have these yet. Our friends bought one of each. You hear that a lot at Glen Manor. "I'll take one of each." Each wine is such a great example of that varietal that you want to take at least one of each with you. My friend Ted asked me which one wine would I buy if I could only have one. That was a difficult question as all are so good, but I eventually chose the Cabernet Franc. Ted agreed. This was a rich, full bodied Cabernet Franc, with great fruit, smooth tannin, and a great finish. The new Petit Manseng was terrific, with great fruit flavor and the semi-dry finish. You can read about the Sauvignon Blanc and Petit Verdot from our recent visit here.
