Detert makes some of the best Cabernet Franc in California. Purple in color with ruby swirls, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is great with black cherries, cassis, fresh tobacco, spice and slight mocha note. Full bodied. Wonderful lush texture. Great balance. On the palate, this is young with firm tannins. Loads of black cherry fruit (although certainly not a fruit bomb), along with some cassis and some underlying char. Long finish. Delicious. It really unwinds over a few hours. Drink over the next fifteen to twenty years. Great on its own, this will work well earthy dishes such as a cassoulet.
