Tasting Notes
A dark blue hue romances the glass giving clues of the proper ripeness of the Cabernet Franc driven wine. Crushed blueberries and rhubarb dominate the nose followed by fresh cut lilacs and hints of tobacco leaves. When tasting, the balanced structure showcases ripe rich tannins, bright acidity and a wonderful combination of blue and red fruits. The hints of dark chocolate and winter spices add complexity to this classic approach to New World Cabernet Franc made in an Old World style. The length of flavors and intricacy will keep you wanting to discover more with each sip. This wine’s open tannins and high acidity highlights the ability to craft a wine that can be drunk now or age for many years.
