Clean, neat and focused but also quite sultry and reveling. Naturally appealing and very flavourful with little oak...

The 2012 Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Cabernet Franc, aged in combinations of French, Russian, Hungarian and American oaks for 22 months; has expressive aromas of toasted oak, vanilla and milky black cherry on the nose and pomegranate, dates and oak on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with refreshing acidity, refined tannins and a medium finish. This is a food friendly wine; drink from 2015/16 till 2020 - evolution potential of +1 (cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 89 (+1 EP) pts, quite expensive for what it is. Tasted in Nov/14 http://grapeselections.com/grapeselections/wine-reviews/.
