Or another idea would be German and Austrian red wines, if anyone is up for that?

I would like to do Merlot sometime though I like the variety less than CF on its own but it does contribute to some stellar wines when there is some CF and CS in the blend.
Pinot Noir is never a problem.
I would love to do Austrian and German reds, if there were not an availability problem even here. There are some remote specialist dealers who do Austrians but I have rarely seen a German red here even though the Ahr valley is only some 2 hours fast drive away.

Cab Franc is delicious with turkey by the way, and since we always alllow blends using the focus grape it is a good way to get Salil to buy and open some Cheval Blanc!
