CABARET FRANK NO.2 ‘THE AVIARY’, OLD VINE CABERNET FRANC
Lodi, California, USA
The styling is following a slightly ‘Victorian’ theme, a bygone era and all that with some fabulous facial furniture at the nub of the story. “In the late 19th century, Captain Francis Frobisher discovered he had a rare gift – he was able to cultivate a variety of wondrous moustaches which took on a life of their own. He became known as Cabaret Frank and was the toast of society with ladies often fainting at the sight of his many and varied performing moustaches.” (It’s all false of course…including the tache!).
