Drinking beautifully now! Very peppery - both the green and red capiscums you come to expect with Cabernet Franc, plus the spicy aroma of black pepper from the Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is truly "balanced", with tons of fruit, but tons of everything else that rises to the occasion - spice, tannin, acidity. Nose: green and red peppers, black pepper, dates. What a delicious wine.
It's been well cellared since purchase. Still has some tannins, but they are light. Didnt need decanting this time. Slowly has matured into a wonderful wine, still with the cab franc fruit but the cab sauv has added a bit of chocolate and tobacco. Well done, and probably still good for another year or two before it hits its peak.
