Very deep ruby. Small wild berries, green pepper, cut grass, tobacco, licorice, herb liqueur, fennel seeds, mediterranean herbs. Toasted of oak. Flashy at palate, hot of alcohol and spice, sustained by a prominent acidity - helped with a service temperature of about 19 c - and bold tannins. Long fruity finish.
A spectacular and brilliant interpretation of the Cabernet Franc varietal. The 2007 Dedicato a Walter provides a fleshy exhuberant fruit combined with subtle and lovely green tones. The first impression is dill, but after a few minutes the unmistakable tone of Cabernet Franc emerges. The nice part of this effort is that the green tones are kept at armlengths distance thanks to the rich fruit. The palate is beautiful and the youth of this effort is nicely handled by a harmonious orchestration of the various components such as tannins, acidity and oak. This effort is impeccably balanced and represents very skillful winemaking. A true experience.
Spectacular in the sense that cab franc may be coaxed into such complex yet well balanced performance. Big rich experience. Rowchan pretty much covered all the palate specifics. Looking forward to years of enjoyment.
Flagship wine, from very small vineyard Clear, black-purple with crimson rim, fantastic tears. Clean, med intensity, black currants, green peppers, balsamic, black pepper, strawberries, stewed red currants and red licorice. Dry, med - body, med - tannins, med- alcohol, changing flavours over the palette, gamey, chewy, with a great finish.
