From one of the premier producers of Cabernet Franc in California. The vines are part of what was historically To Kalon vineyard. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black cherries, slight cigar tobacco and cedar. Wonderful texture. Medium tannins. Nice balance. On the palate, lots of black cherries, some cassis with underlying spice. Lots of energy. Long finish. Delicious. This should last another ten to fifteen years. Great on its own, better with food. Roast duck or chicken would be great.
