Fermented in stainless steel and aged in older barrels, this Cabernet Franc has fresh, fruit forward aromas of bing cherry and raspberry. Nice, crunchy, medium-level of tannins on the palate with black cherry, black currant and menthol flavours. It has fresh acids and a lengthy finish. Tasted Sept/2014.
