Tasting Notes

Strong, radiant ruby garnet, opaque core, deli- cately fading to violet at the rim. Ripe bouquet, nuances of dried plums, dark berry fruit delicately underlaid by balsamic herbs, black cherry confit, fine spicy “steppe” flavor, chocolate touch, juni- per, fresh salty minerality, cedars, hints of coco- nut and tobacco notes. Opulent on the palate, intoxicating extract sweetness, malty, juicy, dark berries, firm tannins, mineral aromas linger on the palate, fascinating multi-layered bouquet, dense, elegant, ripe heart cherry, nougat, ba- lanced, delicate spiciness and roasted notes in the finish, blackberries in the aftertaste. A big and wonderfully typical Cabernet Franc with a long life and early charm at the same time.
