This classic cool climate Cabernet Franc exhibits black cherries, red raspberries, earthiness, and a hint of fine wood spice from the wine’s 20 months of ageing in 47% new French oak barrels. The palate is undeniably ripe (in part due to yields being cut back to 1.4 tonnes per acre) but at the same time there is definite tannic astringency and pronounced acidity that speaks to both vintage and variety. The combination of these elements brings structure and definition to this balanced and polished wine. The 2009 Cabernet Franc is certainly worthy of some long term cellaring

This well structured and balanced wine is showing big fruit characters of cherry and blackberry mixed with a softness of floral notes such as lavender and violets.
