This Cabernet Franc is ruby red in color with soft violet tones. The nose has intense aromas and concentrated notes of cassis, ripe currants, and sweet spices including black pepper and cloves. His tenure provides integrated oak notes of cedar and vanilla. Fresh impact and excellent structure on the palate, reminiscent of ripe red fruits with hints of eucalyptus and tagged black pepper. This wine has an excellent balance and elegance with a well-structured, persistent finish. Food Pairing Pair this Cabernet Franc with grilled game meats.

Wine SpectatorA pure and refreshing red, with raspberry and macerated cherry flavors that are fringed by hints of dried herbs and fresh-ground pepper. The taut finish is framed by slate notes. Drink now through 2020. 6,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy, slightly scratchy aromas of reedy plum and berry fruits set up a drawing palate with raw, scratchy tannins. This Cab Franc shows a woody side even though it was aged in old vats, but it has chocolate and berry fruit flavors to back that up. Residual tannins make for a slightly abrasive finish. Drink through 2020.
