||100% Cabernet Franc
||21 months in French Oak, 66% new
The power of the vintage shows through, with intense aromatic notes of dark cherry, blueberry and plum. The true Cabernet Franc aromatics of cigar box, black pepper, forest floor and pencil lead minerality are under the fruit. The tannins are present but soft and in play well with the acidity, with lush red fruit lingering on the long finish. Beautiful and bright in its youth the wine would benefit from 7-8 years in the cellar.
