Blended with 19% Merlot and 3% Malbec, this Cabernet Franc is richly round and structured, offering a length and breadth of bright flavor and complexity. Black cherry, leather and white pepper compete with classic notions of dried herb and violet, the layers intertwining on the lengthy finish. While it's enjoyable now, it will cellar well through 2024–2030.
