Colluvial Wine

F.R.F Tinaquaic Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2016

Deep ruby/purple color. Aromas of tomato leaf, blue and black berry, tobacco with a touch of green bell pepper. Pallet is rich and full of dark fruit, cocoa, wood, roasted poblano pepper and a touch of vanilla. A bit of tobacco, minerals and earth on the very long finish. Extremely complex and multi dimensional wine. Thank you so much, Kasey! — 9 days ago
