This Cabernet Franc is such a delightful and captivating wine, delicate but in no way dull. The nose is filled with candied black cherry, ripe blueberry and pretty scents of soft violet and subdued woody spicy notes. The color is a clear sparkling ruby red with a soft hued magenta rim and legs that hypnotically flow down the glass.
The front palette is ripe black cherry, black currant and vanillin followed by wild blackberry, Marion berry and red raspberry, finishing with plum, dark chocolate and soft spices. All the flavors are so expertly integrated and balanced, in every aspect a textbook perfect wine, which is probably the reason it was awarded a Double Gold from SIP Magazine’s Best of the Northwest Competition.
