2019 Cabernet Franc, Oakville Station
Dark cranberry hue with aromas of blackberry, black tea, and baking spices. Soft, juicy, and round on entry with luscious blackberry flavors at the core, with a layer of vanilla and spice. The mid-palate is full and generous with complex flavors of ripe summer fruit and a bit of toasty oak. Yet, it has all the elegance you’d expect from Cabernet Franc grown in the heart of Oakville. The finish lingers with beautiful late summer fruit flavors, supple tannins, and balanced acidity.
