Unusually aromatic with notes of preserved cherries and plums accented with honey and brine, this is a rich, slightly rustic example of Cabernet Franc. The palate is ruddy with flavors of dried cherry and fruit compote wrapped in layers of grippy, coarse tannins. Finishes with a touch of spice. Drink now.
