Plenty of blue fruit on the nose with raspberries and blueberries, following through to a medium to full body, tight and firm tannins and a fresh, savory finish. Drink or hold.

Bright red-ruby. Pungent, lively aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, licorice and espresso. Dense, refined and light on its feet; a very ripe, smooth, fine-grained Cabernet Franc with well-judged oak and enticing sweetness to its dark berry fruit and forest floor flavors. Finishes very long and suavely tannic. In a fairly plush, ripe, chocolatey style but very Cabernet Franc in character, given shape by harmonious acidity. (this bottling features gold print on a black label)
