Monday, June 24, 2013 - Rotating Dinner Series- A Focus on Cabernet Franc (Domaine Wine Storage, Chicago IL): Nose: The nose is showing more herbal with a good dose of bell peppers, asparagus, herbs, and dark red cherries. This is lacking some depth as well, but it's also showing fairly tight.
Taste: Medium/full bodied with medium+ acidity and chewy tannins. The structure was youthful with well balanced tones of bell peppers, asparagus, and dark red cherries.
Overall: This didn't seem like it wanted to fully come out and play. There is a very vegetal streak that is nice, but it seems more on the under-ripe side.
