Community Tasting Notes (8) Avg Score: 90.7 points

  • Attractive, clear ruby red. Lovely perfume of red and dark berries: Cherry, raspberry, blackberry. There's also a certain zest underneath, something finely herbal and peppery, but it's very refined. Wow, this is such an inviting bouquet! Seducing rather than showing off. In the mouth, it's levitating, with a very light mouthfeel indeed. The tannins are soft, the acidity is balanced and fresh, and the alcohol is well-integrated. Quite an elegant and pure taste of fresh berries: Black cherry and blackberry. The aftertaste is dominated by red fruit. Flowing nicely. Exquisite and pure Cabernet Franc! One of my go-to Italian "house wines". Drink through 2027. [First published on DMueller.com.]

  • The opening red wine of a Cabernet Franc night with my wine group. Opened but not decanted for over 30 minutes before pouring. Very enjoyable, but much lighter than I was expecting.

  • Knowing this would be too young, I decided to try over two days. First day it was primarily fruit with hints of complexities like herbs and spices and mint. The wine had that "young" aroma and flavour (especially on the finish) that I'm not a fan of, but given that it's a baby that's ok for now.

    The next day, after half had been recorked in the bottle, this had improved significantly. Some of the "young" character had gone and the fruit had toned down to be more in balance with the rest of the wine. This should improve significantly over the next several years at a minimum but probably for at least a decade.

  • Lots of cherry and blackberry up front with some pepper in th me mid-palate. Finally some acidity in the finish, which should die off with another year or so of aging. Glad I have a couple more bottle.

  • Typcial Cab Franc expression. Very much on the spicy site. Really a nice wine to enjoy. Drink now and over the next 5 to 10 years.
