Breaux 2009 Marquis de Lafayette Cabernet Franc (Virginia)

A smoky narcissus note is upfront and almost obtrusive, with brooding notes of spiced black fruit and char lurking in the background. The tannins are drying—with the consistency of finely ground sand—and they constrict the flavors a bit. A food wine for sure, it needs to be paired with a slab of rare meat.
