Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised, with aromas of dried fruit, blackberry, tobacco and blue flower. It drinks off dry, with black cherry, licorice and spice flavors that linger on the finish. A big, ripe wine, darkly flavored with much of the maturity missing. It has ripe berry fruits, touches of wood and has a smooth, mousse of soft tannins. Worth aging, but ready to drink now. Closed and austere in character, this acid-driven wine does not seem to be an ager. It has an herbal character, with a touch of green, it doesn`t offer much fruit, and it doesn`t seem to benefit from extended aging. Hard cherry and nail polish aromas sit atop wiry scents of earth and dust. This Cab Franc is tannic, clampy and astringent, with an undercurrent of cassis and blackberry.
