As one might imagine the aromatics on this baby are quite expressive and Cabernet Franc is known to be far more perfumed than it's wild son Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet expressive amazing notes of rich dark chocolate truffle, dusty coco, blackberry, cherry, red currant, spice, cedar, and a touch of herb and peppercorn.
On the palate the wine is perfectly ripe and shows deep and savory blackberry flavors combined with chocolate truffle, coco powder, oak, and a touch of herb. I love the ripe and almost sweet tannins this wine exudes. While being deliciously savory and ripe the tannin is still firm and structured. Very nice wine that I would have guested to be Cabernet Sauvignon if tasted blind. The only thing that hints towards Cabernet Franc is the expressiveness of the bouquet and the herbal undertones. 91 Points
