Made from equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot, with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the medium ruby colored 2013 Flying Pig gives up lots of black cherry, violets, spring flowers and savory spice in its medium to full-bodied, elegant, silky personality. Raised in 30% new puncheons, with the balance second and third fill barrels, it should drink nicely for another decade. (JD)
Bright red-ruby. Musky but pure aromas of black cherry, dark berries and smoked meat convey a sexy note of reduction. Surprisingly plush and sweet in the middle palate following the reticent nose, with dark fruit flavors complemented by sexy oak tones and notes of olive tapenade and spices. Tightens up again on the firmly tannic, classically dry back end. This solidly structured, fine-grained blend should gain further complexity with a few more years in the bottle. (ST)
This wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc (45%), Merlot (45%) and Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas—both perfumed and subtle—pop with notes of flowers, cassis bud, moist earth, funk, orange peel and red fruit. The flavors are concentrated and velvety, displaying a soft, compelling feel. (SS)
Supple and velvety, layered with aromas and flavors of red berry, black currant, floral and spice that glide easily into a long finish against nubby tannins. (HS)
