2016 Cabernet Franc
Visual: Dark red fruit with nuances of purple and garnet. Heavy and dense legs. Nose: Bouquet of violets, cassis, blackberries, oak spice, and lavender with hint of vanilla oak. The second nose is rich with earthiness and meatiness with nuances of dark chocolate. Palate: Bold and rich attack on blackcurrants and spice. Midpalate full and firm with intense fruit weight around a strong structural tension and a lush core of texture. Finish is tight on tannins but reveals aromas of dried flowers and dark berries along a vein of oak spice and freshness.
