WS 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - This has good depth, with a richness to the layers of damson plum, black cherry and red currant fruit, accented by notes of bouncy pepper, savory and olive. The finish lets a briar accent hang on. Should mellow with moderate cellaring. Drink now through 2018.
According to Vinous - Vivid ruby. Lively Bing cherry aroma complicated by notes of brown spices and tobacco. Fresh red fruit flavors show surprising clarity, with brisk minerality adding spine and lift. A weightier redcurrant element appears on aeration, with firming tannins providing a serious note to this cabernet franc. So appealing on the finish that it is hard to resist a second glass. 12.5% ABV.
