WineMaker Notes: On the palate, the fruit takes over, a riot of red and black berries and stone fruit dominating with savory oak and the darker elements of earth and cocoa flavors showing around the edge. Tannins are gripping but smooth and elegant and the trademark acidity of Cab Franc is perfectly integrated into a seamless whole. Though it should age well up to a decade, this beautifully balanced and pre cocious wine is what to drink now. Enjoy it with pork an game, long-simmered braises and grilled vegetable dishes. It’s also a perfect red wine for cheeses, especially with hard Italian and Spanish types. A Votre Santé!
