It’s the weekend, and it is my 444th review. Let’s celebrate! This is a gorgeous Cabernet Franc to start the weekend with…
Dark ruby in color with a wide purplish rim.
Big Napa Cabernet nose of vanilla, wood, cedar, blackberries, figs, cooked plums, light vegetables, sweet spices and black pepper.
Full bodied and bold, yet smooth and elegant with medium acidity and gorgeous legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, blackberries, plums, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, spices, light nutmeg and peppercorn.
Long, long finish with awesome, full, round tannins and spices.
What a gorgeous wine this is. Nicely balanced, elegant and smooth with a gorgeous mouthfeel. One that you want to enjoy it all by itself without any distractions . Probably peaking now and in the next couple of years. This is like candy in a bottle. Definitely My kind of wine.
Needed 3 hours in the decanter, and even after that, it continued to evolve.
Aged in American oak barrels.
14.9% alcohol by volume.
