Pronounced aromas of smoke and char on the nose of this Cabernet Franc ease into prettier black plum and cherry aromas with a bit of air and patience. Its lusciously ripe style is easy and accessible but subtle complexities of smoke, bramble and nuts make it elegant. Finely textured tannins frame the finish softly.
