2009 CABERNET FRANC

The balance of this wine is striking. All its various aspects are in a sort of ethereal unison. The nose is crushed currents and rose petals. The mouth-feel is exquisite, almost weightless on one hand and dynamically flavorful on the other. The marriage of blueberry/cassis and subtle cocoa flavors laced with caressing acidity and tannins promises a rewarding stay in the cellar as well as a most satisfying drink in the near term.
