Wine Review: This opaque and pitch black colored opens with a blackberry and boysenberry bouquet with hints of anise. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is boysenberry and black currant blend with notes of anise and integrated oak in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are a touch sticky and fade away nicely. This wine would pair well with a ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2010 Paramour offers exquisite aromas of blackberry, blueberry and mint. This authentic expression of Cabernet Franc showcases layers of chocolate and nutmeg and combines with fine-grained tannin and cedar overlay. The supple finish is round and balanced, providing persistent length of flavor. Paramour will continue to develop with time in the bottle for the next decade or more.
