Availability: Sold out. Contact winery for library release info here
Production: 300 cases
Date Tasted: February 7th, 2012
Tasting Notes: This Cabernet Franc, produced from heat-soaked yet acid-retaining grapes from the 2009 vintage, is really starting to come into its own at the beginning of its fourth year revealing maturing aromas of wild berries, fresh mint, vanilla and oak aromas with light, rustic earthy notes. The dry, juicy palate is still quite youthful with mouth-watering acidity and fine, medium tannins supporting ripe mixed berry and licorice flavours. Light spice and cassis puree lingers on the finish. Drink mid-2013-2017.
