Good full red. Exhilarating floral aromas of blueberry, licorice and cinnamon complicated by leather and earth. Juicy, sweet and lively, with an intense flavor of allspice and terrific lift. Elegantly styled and very fresh on the lingering aftertaste.

The elegant, dark ruby/blue/purple-tinged 2005 Cabernet Franc reveals notions of crushed rocks, menthol, blueberries, raspberries, sweet cherries, and subtle smoke and earth in the background. It is a medium-bodied, elegant Cabernet Franc with serious flavor intensity. It should drink well for 8-10 years.

Medium to medium-dark ruby; attractive, intense spicy, cassis and blueberry fruit aroma with notes of green olive and vanilla, and a hint of leather; full body: rich, textured, plummy, dark berry fruit flavors with overtones of sweet oak; firmly structured: full tannin; slightly harsh finish; lingering aftertaste. Highly recommended.

Loamy, earthy flavors are dry and chewy, but the dense berry, spicy oak and toast flavors at the core are simply young and rambunctious now. Decant. Best from 2008 through 2013. 1808 cases made
