The Wine: Essere Franco 2012 Proprietary Red Wine
Our 2012 Essere Franco Red Blend is from our Oak Knoll Vineyard, showing a big dose of black fruits and a long length from being stored in the winery’s cellar for a few years. This wine is meaty; with a concentrated dark black currant and blackberry preserve fruit profile and a nice light toasted nut overture. This Petit Verdot blend is soft and lush with a milk chocolate finish that never ends! Lamb chops over an open fire really need a wine of this pedigree.
The Cigars: Custom rolled for Frank D'Ambrosio by Felix Hernandez under our own label. Every now and then a cigar comes along, and everything about it is just right. Right blend...right flavor...right look. That’s what we’ve got here with Essere Franco's version of the Exactus Clasico, a visually stimulating and deliciously nuanced handmade from a boutique cigar company. Exactus is a business of humble beginnings that dates back to 1955. Headed up by Osvaldo Rodriguez, the son of company founder Don Pulita, it’s also a brand that has serious staying power.
Clasico is rich and creamy in flavor, with surprising yet delightful nuances of fruit thanks to a very deliberate blending technique. An Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper sits atop a blend of Dominican Criollo ’98 fillers. The unique piece here is the Dominican wine fermented Criollo ’98 binder, which contributes those fruit notes we were discussing earlier. Mellow to medium in body, this one would be ideal for the first smoke of the day. The construction is excellent and the taste is wholly unique. Give one a try, you won’t be sorry.
