This is from a region typically more known for their whites. The owner of this winery is the son and nephew of the owners of Clos Rougeard, a "cult" wine in the Loire Valley. This is Cabernet Franc from old vines. It is a very nice wine. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has a slight barnyard with cherries, black licorice and slight hay quality. On the palate, concentrated cherries. Nice layering as this unwinds in the glass. It has a soft texture but at the some time intense. Long finish. Certainly not over ripe, this wine will work better with food. It would be interesting to try in a warmer vintage. It may have room for further improvement over the next five years and should be good for a decade more after that. It will go well with meat dishes and casseroles.
