This is a pretty green cabernet franc, but there's a lot to enjoy about it. Blackberry, black cherry, herbal and green pepper notes on the nose. These flavours pretty much repeat on the palate with high acidity and dry, chalky tannins. Medium-bodied with an average length finish. Let it sit for a bit or make sure you have it with protein. Not too shabby, particularly for the cost. Tasted July 2012.
