De Compostella Cabernet Franc Blend 2011

Greg Ballington

Fourth of the blind wines.

Deep ruby red. Nose started off quite tight, needs more than an hour and a half decant. Earthy nose with menthol notes, darker spices, cinnamon, a touch of dirty cellar, a little green, chalky and light dark berries. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Great structure with notes of red berries, oak, earth, herbaceous, minerality, and a touch vegetal. Very dry and long finish. Drink till 2024. (91+)

Not sure why 2011 only one listed. 2014 was amazing--slightly peppery and very complex. Delicious.
