90 POINTS (Wine Enthusiast)
Bountiful aromatics of rich, cooked pie-filling fruits - blackberry, blueberry, raspberry - that linger along with toasty oak notes, allspice, and juicy plums. The palate is filled with dusty, persistent tannins that are very well integrated with the density and fruit profile. Soft in texture on the entrance, this Cabernet Franc shows wild raspberry and brambly notes that evoke a rustic charm. Spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg follow through to a savory, smoked blueberry finish.
