This is a wine of exception in terms of softness, amplitude and overall texture, which takes me to some of our most memorable tasting experiences! With 32 months of aging on its lees and 100% fermented with indigenous yeast, I now understand better the depth and intricacy of this very unique and complex Cabernet Franc. The nose is exquisite and expressive with unique aromas of cherry liquor, blackberry sauce, cocoa, violet, cedar and red licorice. The palate is rich and suave, offering defined flavours of black cherry, black forest cake, blackberry jam, white chocolate shaving, and a hint of tobacco leaves all very well integrated in a satin like mid-palate. The finish is mildly spicy, but also expresses a chalky grip at the very end to add a spark of minerality and complexity. This is a natural wine at its best, with a very flawless delivery and in its prime window of drinkability! An hour of decanting is suggested. (Re-tasted CWC,28 /08/23). 435 cases made.
