(the estate's oldest cabernet franc, from a single block; this fruit previously went into the Perigee bottling; sold only at the winery): Good bright, dark red. Highly perfumed aromas of cherry, cranberry, flowers and mocha, with complicating balsamic nuances. Big, lush and voluminous, with the red fruit and berry flavors lifted by spices and flowers. Serious but sweet tannins are easily supported by the wine's plump material. This is texturally different from all the other L'Ecole wines I tasted this year. It's also one of several 100% cabernet franc bottlings that caught my attention in my latest round of tastings.
