RATINGS

93The Wine Advocate

...happy Morello cherries, baked raspberries, boysenberries and warm plums notes plus suggestions of pencil lead, red roses, black tea and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, it reveals wonderfully youthful, crunchy red and black fruits with a firm backbone of finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

93Jeb Dunnuck

...beautiful cassis, mulberry, and black cherry fruits as well as classic Cabernet Franc floral, forest floor, and dark chocolate notes. With medium to full body, a beautiful sense of elegance, fine tannins, and just all-around fabulous balance.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Franc

This is a parent grape to Cabernet Sauvignon. It most likely originates from Basque country. It is an excellent blending grape, known for making the exquisite Cheval-Blanc. Franc is a little hardier on a vine than Sauvignon, but drinks smoothly at the table.
