Cabernet Franc is known for its aromatics, and this wine is no exception. The dark, cherry-red color divulges the aromas of wet slate, lavender, violet, kirsch and rhubarb pie. The flavor profile is herbaceous, with floral and mossy notes giving way to rose petal and confectionary rhubarb, with hints of leather and cardamom. The tannins are strong and plush. The finish is both lingering, and expressive.
