(100% cabernet franc): Deep ruby-red. Pungent red cherry and strawberry aromas are lifted by exotic spice notes of nutmeg, cilantro, sandalwood and bay leaf. Juicy and sharply delineated, with firm, ripe acidity and a strong spicy core lifting the rich red fruit and oak flavors. The long finish features peppery tannins and harmonious acidity. A bit more flesh and this wine would have rated an even higher score: I wonder if the very hot vintage made it difficult for the fruit to achieve optimal phenolic maturity. Still, this is borderline outstanding wine. Be sure to give it a couple hours in a decanter if you plan to serve it anytime soon.
