Green pepper, green herb, jalapeño and black cherry aromas are followed by sleek, fresh, well-balanced fruit flavors. One wants a bit more concentration but what's there is pleasing, accented by tart, lively acidity.
Bell, cayenne, white, black, you name it, every kind of pepper is in here. This is all kinds of pepper. Sausage, the slightest hint of orange peel, cocoa powder, strawberries and boysenberries create a midpalate that rolls into gorgeously silky tannins. Both a delicate and geeky wine, the Cabernet Franc is a fun one to have in the arsenal.
