/ Cabernet Franc Viking Vineyard Reserve 2009

Our first estate Cabernet Franc, from our acclaimed Viking Vineyard, emphasizes the plump and fruit forward side of its more usual herbal influenced personality.  The current youthful tannins will reward either decanting or additional bottle age as aeration reveals the emerging bouquet of violets and resonant raspberry-like fruit.  Returning to the open bottle after several hours you will see the emergence of a mineral and tobacco leaf infused black licorice fruit melded with currants and the flesh of ripe plums.  Further bottle age will see additional complexity, reaching an optimum plateau by 2016 and continuing through 2019.
