An example of honest and authentic moderate climate Cabernet Franc, produced with fruit from an exceptional vintage. This wine showcases aromatics in the form of blackberry jam, fresh mint leaf, black pepper, cooked
blueberry, black cherry, sweet tobacco (similar to Oscuro Cigars), ripened plum and blackcurrant, with a subtle undertone of butter, courtesy of malolactic fermentation. Once allowed to breathe, notes of leather and cedar become more pronounced, suggesting potential tertiary aromatics. The palate mirrors the nose, with notable flavours of black cherry and blackberry, alongside butter and toasted almond, with a hint of dark chocolate on the extended finish. Acid and tannin profile balance quite well, and with bottle maturity, this wine will reveal tertiary characteristics and primary fruit development.
