Wine EnthusiastPlummy blackberry and cherry flavors abound in this Cabernet Franc, anchored by a taut frame of fine, firm tannins and cranberry acidity. It seems lavishly oaked, but pronounced aromas of cedar and toast integrate smoothly on the palate. The long finish is marked by an enticing pencil-shaving edge.

Whisky AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Franc was aged for approximately eight months in neutral oak. It comes in at 12.5% alcohol. Friendly and easy, this is has a touch of herbs, but not much green. The structure is subdued and there isn’t a lot of concentration, but there is a delightfully juicy finish and silky texture. This is a pleasure to drink as a laid back Cab Franc, the main quibble being the price point. That’s up to you and your wallet. It should make an enjoyable house pour and a fine food wine.
