Sparkman 2019 Yonder Cabernet Franc (Columbia Valley (WA))

This blend of 78% Cabernet Franc, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Malbec was aged in 78% new French oak for 18 months. The nose of blackberries, violets, vanilla and allspice led me to a situation where most of the fruit on the palate was initially hidden behind a wall of grippy tannins. With some vigorous swirling, notes of Bing cherries, dark chocolate and bay leaf came out to play. Michael Alberty
