huckleberry and blueberry jam aromatics.

Palate

Fruit loaded on the palate with a typical Cabernet Franc flavor profile. The mid-palate has nice fatness from a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. It has mouth coating moderate tannins with a soft finish. Will benefit from further aging but can be easily enjoyed upon release.
