Date Tasted: October 6th, 2016

Tasting Notes: A brooding Cabernet Franc fr
om the excellent 2014 vintage, full of dark berry fruit, intense earthy-herbs and meaty-metallic aromas and flavours but not without a few feminine touches like candied fruit, mocha and floral notes on the otherwise masculine nose and palate. Well structured with dusty tannins and fleshy, berry acidity. Length is moderate, but well balanced.

Enjoy now or over the next 3-4 years with some further development likely. Drink 2016-2020.
