2009 Cabernet Franc
Aromas of cedar, tobacco leaf and blueberry waft from the glass followed by savory aromas of dried sage and violets. A first sip rewards the palate with a smooth mouthfeel backed up by fine and dusty tannin and a melange of flavor - more blueberry, red plum, red currant. Spicy and savory notes of white pepper, blackstrap molasses and quinine are joined by hints of mocha and earthy, graphite-like notes. Clean and refreshing on the finish, this wine begs for food!
