2010 Cabernet Franc Tasting
2010 CABERNET FRANC
The finesse, delicacy and expressiveness of this wine are remarkable. It has bright ruby color with aromas of black cherries and a faint hint of earthiness. It's soft and round through the midpalate carrying flavors of cherries, black currents and chocolate balanced with refreshing acidity. The long, tasty finish highlights the rich tannins that give it such powerful structure.
