This classic Cabernet Franc-based red is featured regularly on NY's most discerning wine lists — we first sampled it at Union Square Café. Savvy sommeliers turn to Loire Valley reds for complex wines with balance and structure that won't brutalize the food on diners' plates. Little wonder the wine sells out quickly vintage after vintage. The newly-minted Anjou is loaded with sweet blackberry and red bell pepper vibes that make for perfect picnic sipping. A crusty loaf of bread with a swab of paté or a hunk of cured salami and a dab of mustard are all it takes to make the magic!
