(just 13% alcohol, from vines planted at an altitude of 1,700 feet; "perfectly ripe at 22.8 degrees Brix," noted O'Reilly): Bright saturated red. Multidimensional nose combines candied cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, spices and violet. Wonderfully sweet, lush and ripe in the mouth, but at the same time lively and delineated. Pure, mouthfilling wine with suave tannins and excellent length. Terrific Right Bank-style cabernet franc without a suggestion of greennness. A beauty.
