The body is smooth with warm, radiant tannins that are supported by a fresh acidity the keeps the wine crisp and refreshing.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is simple in structure and ample in density. It is full bodied and plush on the palate in black cherry, berry and a richness of vanilla wafer.

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Franc (a blend of 80% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot and 8% Malbec) is a bit herbal on the nose, with red and black currants and warm plums aromas plus an earthy undercurrent and a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied with plenty of herbs in the mouth and chewy tannins, it has a firm, drying finish.
