Wine Review: This opaque and red ruby colored Cabernet Franc based blend showed really-well in our Big Blind tasting. It opens with a pleasant black raspberry bouquet with hints of cedar, menthol, light leather and touch of heat. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black plum, black raspberry and black cherry blend with notes of oak, minerality, and cinnamon. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins show very nice length. The Tasting Panel suggested pairing this gem with a Colorado lamb chop or a venison steak. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Delightful aromas of blueberry, violets, and espresso encircle the nose of this elegant Cabernet Franc-blend. Layers of Bing cherry, bramble, blackberry, and savory herbs combine with fine-grained tannins on the palate, leading to a round, supple finish with persistent length. Enjoy now or cellar over the next decade or more.
