This is 100% Cabernet Franc.  After fermentation, it spent 12 months in amphora where it underwent malolactic fermentation.  The result is an outstanding wine.  Black cherry in color, mostly clear and bright.  The nose is tight at first but opens to show black cherries, smoke, and baking spices.  Full bodied.  Firm tannins.  On the palate, black cherries, slight cigar box and very concentrated.  Nice finish.  Still young, this will improve. Drink over the next ten to twelve years.  Lamb chops would go quite well.
