This wine has aged very gracefully. Nice fruit on the nose that carries through to the nice finish. It still has a little tannins remaining.

Lost this bottle in the cellar a few years ago. The wine seemed to age gracefully. Lost a lot of the rhubarb bite. Tart enough to offset the sweet with some berry. Very drinkable for a fruit wine.

2010 Oakville East Cabernet Franc Franc n Stern

Drank early but needed to taste Oakville East's newest wine.
Double decanted for 2 hrs, Wonderful aroma of dark berries, earth and a little spice. Taste was muted compared to the aroma. Lots of dry tannins on the long finish of earth and some fruit. Compared to their Core Stone? maybe the fruit is not as sweet. A few years to let the tannins mellow would make a big difference.
