Really surprised on this one, was expecting and oaky blueberry typical CA Cab Franc but this definitely shows true to the varietal, light color and extraction, nose screams green bell pepper, green tobacco, herbs, smoke, complex, only shades of juicy fruit; nice on the palate, good acid lift though still some structure, well integrated oak, longer fruit finish; were in the mood for Loire and reluctantly opened this much to our chagrin; highly recommend for anyone who likes Chilean reds.
With braised chicken, rice, and shitake mushrooms.
Clear ruby, substantial but inviting. Lovely nose - layers of aroma (nutty, dried herb, mushroom). Medium - medium/full body, very nice balance, acid and tannin giving a mouth-watering touch. Earthy, mushroomy quality. Very smooth.
