K&L Notes

Produced from vines in the Pedriel sub-zone, this wine absolutely is Cabernet Franc in character, with a combination of a savory and subtly snappy green character aligned with a real richness and velvety mouth feel. Good Chinon comes to mind, which some would argue is the best compliment that a Cabernet Franc from outside of the Loire Valley could hope to garner. Delicious and intriguing Cabernet Franc.

    This is one of the best New World Cabernet Francs I have tried recently. It has rich flavors of strawberries, blueberries, mint, eucalyptus and just a touch of stewed peppers, with soft, ripe tannins and beautiful acidity to match the richness of the fruit. The finish goes on and on. If you have found the Cabernet Francs of the Loire to be a little too earthy, this might please you much more.

    I know it is common to hear Cab Franc and equate it with bell peppers. Although the nose has a pronounced bell pepper quality, the wine has rich dark fruit richness with smooth tannins. Some tobacco notes with a LONG raspberry finish! Very fresh.
