Very nice blend that picked up a velvety quality while being supple. The Cab Franc was very nice and provided beautiful blue fruit and lavender notes. Nice acidity, fragrant and medium length finish. Enjoyed
I opened this for our 9/19/14 prime rib dinner. It had a rich, ripe and fragrant bouquet of violet, black cherry, black currant, cinnamon, cocoa and spice aromas. The palate was rich and powerful, but a tiny bit rough with flavors of black cherry, black currant, black tea, cinnamon, spice and minerals. 91+
Dented for one hour. I know this was an early consumption. I was curious. I have a few more bottles. The fruit was not strong. Nose was just OK. I will hope for better results next time, but I am concerned.

(Cadence Bel Canto Red Wine Cara Mia Vineyard Red Mountain) Dark to the point of being opaque. A beautiful, expressive nose with chocolate, licorice, earth, dark fruit, spice, and light herbal notes. Elegantly structured on the palate. Less fruit intensity than the Ciel and Taptiel offerings but still delivers with excellent focus and structure. Give two to three years. 62% Cabernet Franc, 31% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot. 14.4% alcohol. 570 cases produced.
