2019 was a temperate vintage with normal levels of heat, precipitation and yield. A sunny fall extended the harvest window, delivering structured, complex Cabernet Franc wines with medium to long-term ageability.

Sensory Profile
Colour Medium garnet. Nose Lifted aromas of cedar, mint, black cherry, forest floor and black tea, with nuances of toffee, graphite and eucalyptus. Palate Dry and medium bodied with juicy, red cherry fruit and light, fine-grained tannins up front; the tannins broaden while remaining refined in the middle, showing a hint of smoke and melding with the wine's bright, red currant fruit; the tannic core draws into a polished, harmonious finish of cherry, grilled red pepper and pencil shavings.
Best consumed 2021 through 2023; will hold through at least 2027
