($75; 100% cabernet franc; 14.5% alcohol) Bright ruby. Lovely lift to the aromas of sweet coconut, red cherry and raspberry jam, complicated by Asian spices and vanilla. Supple and intensely flavored, with an ultra-creamy texture to its ripe red fruit and sweet spice flavors. An extremely lush wine with real depth and breadth, and uncommonly graceful for such a large-scaled, rich wine. Finishes subtle and long, with a touch of alcoholic warmth. This excellent cabernet franc shouldn't be a surprise, given that this estate is owned by Luca D'Attoma, also the winemaker at Le Macchiole, home of Italy 's best pure cabernet franc.
