Deep ruby. Sweet, ripe aromas of black cherry and balsamic vinegar, complicated by a whiff of game. Pure black cherry, coffee and spice flavors are framed and lifted by very fine tannins and strong but balanced acids. Finishes long and smooth. A fantastic second wine here.
Cabernet Franc on the nose – positively leafy, in both senses of the adverb. Polished and smooth even if far from dramatic and extracted. Very distinctive.
