Tasting Notes:

Bright blueberry, black cherry and a rich bouquet of spring flowers introduce the 2006 Signature Cabernet Franc. Exemplifying an ideal balance of juicy dark fruits and earth, the mid-palate offers up supple flavors of bittersweet chocolate, plum and sweet anise while persistent notes of licorice, tobacco and nutmeg define the long finish.
