Tasting Notes:

Dramatically reduced crop in 2010 yielded a Signature Cabernet Franc of flavor, stature and structure— one that will undoubtedly broaden and develop over time. Revealing classic notes of black tea, jasmine and sandalwood, the wine unfolds with juicy flavors of blueberry and black cherry entwined with dusty cocoa, dry sage and dark espresso. There’s an appealing muscularity to this vintage, balanced with warm spice notes of cinnamon and clove on the finish.
