Wine Spectator rates it 90, while Wine Enthusiast gives it 87, noting “a severe core of tannins” last April. The tannins are a minor issue now. One of the better expressions of cabernet franc I’ve tasted, with a fine textural sheen and a gentle yet rich nose of black raspberry, red pepper, vanilla and fresh wood. Medium-full and warm, with a dry, dusty, tannic finish. Very good to excellent length. Best 2010 to 2013.
