Bright medium ruby-red. Classic aromatic Cabernet Franc nose offers blackberry, spices and violet, plus a faint hint of creosote. Concentrated, floral and energetic, delivering a wonderfully suave, fine-grained texture and a sexy oak element. The finish features building tannins and rising spicy length. A distinctly serious Cabernet Franc for aging. Vigil told me he considers this to be a perfect example of the variety.
