And example of honest and authentic moderate climate Cabernet Franc, produced with fruit from exceptional an vintage. This wine showcases aromatics in the form of blackberry jam, fresh mint leaves, black pepper, cooked blueberry, black cherry, sweet tobacco (similar to Oscuro Cigars), ripe and plum, and black current, with a subtle undertone of butter, courtesy of malolactic fermentation. Once allowed to breathe, notes of leather and cedar become more pronounced, suggesting potential tertiary Aromatics. The pallet mirrors the nose, with notable flavors of black cherry and blackberry, alongside butter and toasted almond, with a hint of dark chocolate on the extended finish. Acid and tan and profile balance quite well, and with bottle maturity, will allow this wine to reveal tertiary characteristics and primary fruit development.
